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.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
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.
