Mughal paintings must always rank proudly in the comparative scales of the worlds art in its singularity of style, its originality and its superb drawing.

Portraiture was the forte of Mughal art. Though Shah Jahan's reign saw a spurt of wonderful architecture, painting was not neglected. His albums include portraits of his sons done in different styles. His favourite son Dara Shokuh is shown in the conventional portrait manner, standing in profile against an olive green background. He is dressed in a transparent jama and an exquisitely woven patka. His turban is richly decorated with a Sarpech, a kalza and a plume. The features in profile show a wide forehead, an aquiline nose and a shapely chin which the beard can barely conceal, in fact, the subtle modeling of the features is excellent.

The artist applies the paint lightly, not using too many contrasting colours. The green of the background uplifts the portrait into prominence.

Dear friends, I just placed my order for one Radhe-Shyam copper bangle and I am looking forward to seeing the quality of your products. I have been searching for years for this price range of bangle with 'Radhe Radhe' or 'Radhe-Shyam'. I may add more items as I was not through shopping when I clicked on PayPal. Thanks sooo much for providing such hard-to-find and fair-priced items! Sincerely, David Briscoe

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
