Zoological portraits representing birds and animals are a highlight of Mughal art. They appear either single or in pairs. Of all the animals, elephants fascinated them the most.

In this painting, the figures of the elephants dominate the whole composition juxtaposed against a subdued background. It is a simple composition, accommodating the protagonists i.e. the elephants, more spaciously, to allow maximum detail. Portraying violent action are two massive elephants engaged in a fight. Violence seems further strengthened, as the elephant on the right has broken the chains he was bound with. The Mughal emperor's were extremely fond of elephant fights and reared elephants specially for the purpose. Their ornaments show that both belong to the same stables. The area immediate to the elephants is shaded in soft green. The artist has thus made an attempt to subtly uplift the images of the animals.

The right corner of the painting gives a definitive impression of the ground and the upper left corner gives a partial view of a palace in the distance. However, both these elements do not have any impact on the main composition.

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.
