A brilliant amalgam known as the Mughal style of painting was neither Persian, nor indigenous, but a happy synthesis of the best of both. Portraits of humans, birds and animals were the hallmark of the Mughal school.

The dignity and importance of a fine steed is well portrayed here. Contrary to the Persian mode of depicting animals which is purely linear and descriptive in character, the animal is portrayed here as an 'individual' with emphasis on physiognomy. This painting shows minimum action but then it is not action but technical finesse and refined workmanship in a more restrained manner that makes this picture valuable.

The isolated figure dominates the composition. A stiff depiction of the neck and firm and bold curves of the back betray some rigidity in the drawing, but is greatly relieved by the anatomical correctness of the pose. There is deep shading and heavy modeling employed to highlight the contours and various parts of the body. The artist makes minute distinctions in the texture and patterning of the different parts and is detailed and precise in observation. The lines have swift vitality and independent rhythms. The artist has accurately described visual traits and pleasingly balanced the various elements of the work. Attention is paid to the use of pigments that reflect the actual color of the subject.

A subdued background throws up the animal figure in relief. In the treatment of the background, a natural representation of distance is attempted with considerable success.

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
