The Mughals were fascinated by the elephant. Nay, their interest in the elephant almost verged on infatuation. As much as they were impressed with its sharp intelligence and indispensability in the battlefield, they enjoyed watching the deadly sport of the elephant fight.

In this painting, the artist has frozen the drama and fury of the moment when the royal elephant collides with the rebel one. We see the fight of two giant pachyderms, especially trained by their mahouts or even drugged. The elephants here have bulky bodies with large foreheads; their flapping ears are dramatically drawn with only one of them having tusks. In comparison to the gigantic bodies, the tails are short and thin. The intermingled trunks appear like the ram's horns. The elephant on the left is smaller in size, its rear limbs are a trifle awkwardly drawn but solves the purpose of showing strength exerted against the opponent.

The colours of the subject merge with that of the background, but for the sharp, thin lines that outline the animals.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
