Deccani art form evolved in the beginning of the 15th century. It is a sort of fusion of Islamic idiom with the art tradition of Deccan. In the 18th century, some Mughal artists migrated to the Deccan and they blended stylistic elements and refinement of Mughal art with the romantic fervour of Golconda school.

This rigorously immobile human figure with distinct features stands erect with his hands crossed over a stick. His religious bent of mind is evident from the rosary that wraps itself around his wrist. He wears layers of robes, each different in colour and design. These robes are conspicuous by the absence of embroidery and embellishments so frequently associated with the Deccani style. There is an overpowering sense of stillness yet the face radiates the gentle mood of reflection. The vacuous eyes are staring into space. The turban covers most part of his forehead. It has a stiff, conical shaped protuberance, with fanning edges all around. There is a halo around his head signifying his royal status.

Owing to its stiffness, there is plasticity in the painting lacking warmth and emotion. The sharp lines of the fully profiled pose are highly legible, but very little modeling is used. Subtle allusions to western art can be detected although they are so skilfully integrated into the overall aesthetics that they are barely noticeable.
