Jehangir's scientific curiosity and innate desire for documentation of rarities gave a tremendous impetus to 'zoological portraits' of immense value and quality. The artists strived hard to portray life likeness after a careful study and observation.

This portrait belongs to one of the carnivores of the family felidae. The figure is static and still as a result of emphasis on the representation of details, i.e. firm lines describing the anatomy of the animal and other definite details like the tail, the paws etc. Nevertheless, it is a work of deep study imbued with realism. The features and expression of the face reminds one of the bigger member of the cat family but the tail contradicts any similarity that may be there. The penetrating look in the eyes, the alert ears show that the animal is anticipating danger anytime.

The background constitutes an important aspect in the composition of this painting. The naturalistic trees swaying in the wind and the undulating lush green mounds show the animal's natural habitat. The insignificantly painted goat in the distance conveys its victim in the food chain. There is not much difference in the colors of the sky and ground - everything is in dull green. The maturity and refinement of the line represents the high renaissance of the Mughal School. This tautly modeled and glowingly sleek animal presents a remarkably realistic picture.

I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
Thank you for your wonderful service and amazing book selection. We are long time customers and have never been disappointed by your great store. Thank you and we will continue to shop at your store
