Mughal art broke new ground in the use and representation of the floral motif in painting. It had existed in Indian art, no doubt, but only as an embellishment or as symbols. The Mughal artist felt that the natural beauty of the flowers was great enough to make them the central theme of the painting.

From the sturdy ground, shoots out a strong, erect stem, confident of bearing the weight of numerous leaves, buds and flowers. There is a cluster of long, curling leaves at the base. On observation, one finds that the shading is denser and brighter towards the inside and in a lighter shade around the edges, which helps in giving the leaves and the flowers a sense of volume. The artist has carefully arranged the composition laying importance on balance and lyrical quality than on natural rendition. The petals of the royal blue flowers are closely packed even in fully bloomed flowers. A semi-bloomed bud forms the crowning glory of the plant, sitting atop the main stem, head held higher than the rest, welcoming the butterfly, hovering around it.

The background is treated plain, laying total focus on the main subject.

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.
