Bird painted by Kailash Raj. Border by Mahesh Soni.

The depiction of birds and animals in art of the Mughal School has been appreciated by art historians and connoisseurs alike for its accuracy and detail. An intimate, careful observation of the subject was the basis of their characteristic and lifelike pictures.

This painting represents the Gosh falcon perching on a branch in rigid profile and centrally positioned in the composition. The well defined form of the bird and the remarkable precision of inner details, including the ferocity in the eye and the sharpness of the preying beak, testify to the artist's keen perception. The portrait shows detail of color and form. To accuracy, the artist has added character, to detail he has added life. The spectacular cloak of ermine feathers, one of the most beautiful plumages in nature, is painted in a manner that feels soft to touch.

The plain background in contrast to the slow careful work on the bird, not only throws the figure in relief to the fore, but is suitably functional in any objective picture of nature. There may not be a tree to hold the branch the bird is placed on, but the color green substitutes for it and holds the branch which otherwise would have appeared hanging in space. The hashiya is uniformly wide at the top, on the bottom and on the sides. It is decorated with varied naturalistic flowering plant motifs executed in gold with white lotus flowers in pairs occupying the corners. The border is also decorated with a number of birds, some natural and anatomically correct and others of a more fantastic nature. Subdued colors on a mud brown hashiya do not interfere with the central picture. Nowhere in the picture has the balance been tempered with or colors clashed. This has helped in complementing the enchanting bird.

Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
