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.

Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
