Custom crafted and featuring an exquisite antique finish, this artwork is bound to add an instant exotic flair to your home decor. It will grace any room with its unique blend of elegance and natural beauty.
The superb artwork captures the Mughal emperor enjoying a quiet interlude in the open harem court.
Keeping with the tradition of such art the back of the plate is also painted with beautiful objects. This concept was introduced by the British in 19th century India.
This unparalleled classical art brings out the graceful and romantic lifestyles of the Mughals. It is full of life and color in a luxurious world of physical beauty and sensuality.
The magnificent representation of the emperor and his companion is hand painted with opaque watercolors on eco-friendly faux (synthetic) ivory with intricate designs. The material used in the artwork has the look of antique ivory but is actually faux ivory that is “aged” with acrylic paint and sealed with a matte finish, giving the piece a wonderful distressed look. The whole process is very labor intensive and painstakingly achieved.
Spend some time looking at the ornate miniature painting popularized by Mughal courts and Persian epics, and you’ll notice that these tiny masterpieces, created with pigment mixed in seashells and brushes made from just a few strands of squirrel hair, have something in common: their timeless appeal. Don’t miss out, buy it now for your decor or collection.
Note: Faux (or artificial) ivory, on which this art is made, is a special polymer clay with the characteristics of real ivory. Faux ivory sheets have a natural ivory grain pattern and are used for painting, molding and carving. An environmentally friendly alternative to real ivory.
