One of the enduring characteristics of Indian civilization is the rich diversity of cultural and social levels. Different cultures clashed, co-existed, and ultimately enriched each other.

The conventional pose adopted by the sitter is the one that frequently occurs in the works from the Deccan. This portrait of Tipu Sultan expresses the dramatic intensity of mood and also bring to the surface the inner feelings of the sitter. This portrait, with the sultan's face in profile shows him clad in a green striped tunic with long sleeves. It is tied at the waist by a thickly folded sash into which is tucked the royal sword. He also wears a similar green turban, roped with pearls and surmounted by an aigrette. Sitting against an orange bolster, his posture and attitude capture his firm resolve.

In warfare, in state craft, in sound judgement and administration, he had no one to rival or equal him. These qualities of the mind and action enabled him to rise to the eminence. This portrait amply reveals the sultan's inherent inner personality.

The background is plain and simple compared to the complexity of the portrait. A clear sky of cerulean blue with darker shades on the top make the only background. Although the artist uses limited colours here, he has used them judiciously.

I bought DVs supposed to receive 55 in the set instead got 48 and was in bad condition appears used and dusty. I contacted the seller to return the product and the gave 100% credit with apologies. I am very grateful because I had bought and will continue to buy products here and have never received defective product until now. I bought paintings saris..etc and always pleased with my purchase until now. But I want to say a public thank you to whom it may concern for giving me the credit. Thank you. Navieta.
