Flowering plants and gardens are potent metaphors in Islamic culture. They evoke the splendor of paradise and signify the realization of perfection, likened to the spiritual path of grace.
Throughout the Islamic world, architectural surfaces, textiles. and luxury objects abound with floral imagery. Paintings from the Muslim kingdoms of India are celebrated for their sometimes abstract, but always wonderful representations of over-sized, flowering plants.
In this wonderful Mughal Floral artwork, by enclosing a colorful plant within an illuminated script border , enlarging its scale and isolating it in the center of the painting, the artist has created a stunning floral portrait.
