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.

I finally got my nearly $300 Meenakari earrings today. They were promised in 4-6 days but it took a week for them to be shipped. Then it was 4-6 days. When I saw them I had mixed feelings. They are cute but it took me a half hour to get them in my ears as the posts are really large in diameter. I had to use vaseline and force them through and then the screw on backs (a good thing) wouldn't line up. There seems to be something inside the screw on locks that act as a securing agent. Any way most of the things I've got from ExoticIndia were gifts and acceptable.
