The Mughals were fascinated by the elephant. Nay, their interest in the elephant almost verged on infatuation. As much as they were impressed with its sharp intelligence and indispensability in the battlefield, they enjoyed watching the deadly sport of the elephant fight.

In this painting, the artist has frozen the drama and fury of the moment when the royal elephant collides with the rebel one. We see the fight of two giant pachyderms, especially trained by their mahouts or even drugged. The elephants here have bulky bodies with large foreheads; their flapping ears are dramatically drawn with only one of them having tusks. In comparison to the gigantic bodies, the tails are short and thin. The intermingled trunks appear like the ram's horns. The elephant on the left is smaller in size, its rear limbs are a trifle awkwardly drawn but solves the purpose of showing strength exerted against the opponent.

The colours of the subject merge with that of the background, but for the sharp, thin lines that outline the animals.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
