DESCRIPTION

Sitting on a floral carpet outside a bedchamber, a noble dressed in Mughal apparel including Jahangir-period turban and decorated sash is trying to assuage his displeased consort. The lady turns her face away from the man, showing that his appeals have been ignored. The black sky indicates that their quarrel takes place in the middle of the night.
