Rajput painting is essentially an aristocratic folk-art, static and lyrical. Action and events formed a vital part of their thematic content. Hunting, the ancient royal sport, is the subject of several paintings.

The scene is packed with descriptive details, both of the action and of the landscape. It involves agile movement and activity – so much so that even the foliage does not look static. The prince and his queen test their skills on the swift animals, bows and arrows, their weapons of offence. True to their status they are attired in rich jewellery and clothes.

The horses appear seemingly well-bred by line and shape. What remains a mystery is what drove the artist to paint them the way he does! They disturb the colour order. The distressed animals are seen running helter-skelter for their lives. By mere positioning of their limbs, they are shown leaping, jumping or stumbling. Barely too scared to either hide in the bushes close by or skip away.

The background gives a sense of spaciousness what with the smooth gradient of the hills, a wide variety of foliage. Colour red is generously used to depict the energy and fervour of hunting.

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.
