See The First Adventure of the White Horse, Page from the Khan Khanan's Razm Nama (Book of Wars) Sur Das Gujarati (Indian, active 16th century) India, Subimperial Mughal school, 17th century Ink and color with gold on paper Overall: 35 x 24 cm (13 3/4 x 9 7/16 in.) Mr. and Mrs. William H. Marlatt Fund 1960.44 DESCRIPTION A tree with a whimsically mint-green trunk populated with birds and nests with eggs appears to the left of the block of text, in which the action below is described in Persian. Under the tree on a blanket is Arjuna, one of the main heroes of the Razm-nama. He is an extraordinary warrior and holds his bow as he receives his son Vabhruvahana, who has come to apologize for having captured the horse of the royal horse sacrifice––a major indiscretion.

MUGHAL IMAGES

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.
