The Mughal miniature developed its own set of rules governing style, artistic deformation, and stylization of reality. Innovations were derived partly from indigenous contemporary trends and partly from European paintings. This remarkable miniature is an example of Jahangir's predilection for painting flora and fauna.

Examination of the painting reveals its dependence upon the Safavid manner, both in subject manner and technique. Also purely Safavid are the cragged mountains and small trees springing off them, the overall gold sky and the painting of the leaves of the plane tree; the autumnal tints of the leaves facing the viewer are painted against the undifferentiated dark green blocks of the leaves on the other side. The landscape is brushed in flat planes without any of the recessional techniques. The bole of the tree is not a flat surface but a rounded one which stands proud of its flat background.

The man is determined to climb it, with one foot firmly planted and a hand surely grasping. Above all, it is the delightful, fully modeled squirrels, a dozen in all - as they playfully gambol about the branches and entice the man upwards - which makes the painting alive.

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.
