Painting on Urdu Manuscript - Elephant Jousting
Size (WxH) : 10.5 x 17 Inches
Finish : Watercolors on Paper
Miniature paintings, as their name suggests, are compact (usually not more than a few square inches) yet, intricate. They were introduced during the Mughal rule. Despite their size, these paintings were stunningly precise and detailed with some lines being painted with brushes made of a single strand of squirrel hair. They were highly sought after by art enthusiasts and were featured in various ivory panels, manuscripts and books from that period. However, they are now painted on synthetic boards instead.
This Elephant Jousting painting is a hand-painted illumination on a handwritten leaf of History manuscript in Urdu language. The paper is very delicate and fragile.
