Few dynasties in history equal the Mughals in the enlightened, discerning patronage of the arts. Mughal painting is academic, dramatic, objective and eclectic and more importantly an art of portraiture.

The style strikes one as being strong, self assured, wholly comfortable in its iconic use of types and convention. The figure face in profile and the body in three quarter profile - is drawn firmly and with clarity. That royalty was treated as divine is portrayed here by the halo around the head. A jama of opaque fabric gathers at the waist, held in place by a patka, and then falls till the calves; a tight pyjama completing the attire. Shahjahan wears a turban decorated with a string of gems and a large plume. Necklaces, bracelets, rings form part of his ornaments. A small dagger can be noticed, discreetly tucked under his belt. The pose is of blatant display of the jewellery piece the 'sarpech' or the aigerette, his one hand holding it delicately and the other directing the viewers attention towards it.

The background is deep green with a few non-descript flowers sprayed at random, straying from the thin horizontal depiction of the sky and definative vegetation.

The inscription identifies the figure as Shahjahan.

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.
Gina, USA
