Aurangzeb ke darbar ki
A Mughal Emperor, possibly Aurangzeb is seated on a throne under a gold canopy. He inspects a piece of jewelery in his left hand. One of his sons stands behind him. An attendant waving a morchal stands behind the Emperor. Courtiers surround him; the one in the foreground bows before the Emperor, hand held to head. A brown and gold carpet lies under the throne; gold textile blinds are fixed to the marble archways. Marble pillars are outlined in grey in the background.
Verso: Red flowers and green leaves outlined in gold.
