Presenting a Beautiful Indian floral miniature painting.
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.
From the 17th century onwards, under the Mughal dynasty, flower and leaf forms became a popular art subject. This is partly due to the personal taste of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-1627) who had a great love of nature and was very interested in capturing plants and animals on paper.
In this wonderful artwork, by enclosing a colorful plant within a flower filled border, enlarging its scale and isolating it in the center of the painting, the artist has created a stunning floral portrait.
This miniature art provides a naturalistic depiction of flowers with great detail that brings out a feeling of earthly charm and pleasure.
It is indeed an art to cherish and a collector's delight. Buy it now for your decor or collection.
