Maharaja Ram Singh of Bundi in a Wedding Procession



Gouache on paper 8.1 x 11.8 in. (20.6 x 30 cm.) Front: “Bundi Durbar Ram Singhji” Inscription informs that the nayak in procession is Ram Singh of Bundi, but the facial features do not go with other known images of him. This procession scene is rendered in mixed style of Jodhpur and Bundi and appears to be of a royal wedding. The bridegroom has a golden nimbus around his face and is decked with lavish gold-pearl jewelry. Majority of the people attending the procession are clad in orange-red outfits, suiting the festive mood. People in the front rows are holding guns and javelins and few are holding various standards of the royal house. Artist rendered the movement of the procession by aligning men and objects including the guns, javelins and the rope inside the palanquin to show uniform flow and discipline. Mughal Library

Very good information.


The Mughal Images immediately took a much greater interest in realistic portraiture than was typical of Persian miniatures. Animals and plants were the main subject of many miniatures for albums and were more realistically depicted. To upload your images click here.
