Portraiture in miniature painting is considered the most delicate and subtle amongst its branches. Action and events take a backseat to expressive human portraits.

This miniature, Deccani in concept, is sober in its selection of the palette. The man seated against a big bolster seems an ordinary man, not a chieftain or a dignitary. The bold, rounded form of the man looks not at the viewer but elsewhere. Dressed in opaque white attire consisting of a full-sleeved jama and a tight pyjama, he looks dignified. His posture and movements of the limbs lack activity and reflect relaxation. A small turban sits precariously on his big head. The face with multi-layers of chins merge with the body, the neck almost concealed. The eyes look vacuous and the mouth is unsmiling, the expression being that of anxiety or worry. A tray with betel leaf preparation lies in the foreground. A small pillow also lies closely, which is quite unnecessary and in no way adds to the substance of the composition.

A sober colour palette deviate from the gaudy Deccani chromatic rule.

Testimonials

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!
Raghavan, USA
My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
