With a flower in their hands, they each ride a richly adorned elephant towards each other. The abundance of decorative elements tells a story… they are royalty from Mughal, India. Their eyes tell an even more important tale… they are in love.
This pair of Mughal Miniature Paintings (known as ambabari elephant art of Jaipur, India) was handmade using watercolor on faux ivory panel.
You’ll immediately notice that despite its small size, no details have been spared — from the intricately lined elephant skin, to the decadent jewel tone swirls and leaf work on the elephants covering, to the semi precious stones directly embossed into the painting. It’s a historical step back to the 16th century when works of art like this was commissioned for Indian royalty.
You’ll be amazed by the level of intricacy in such a small amount of space. And whether it hangs on a wall or rests on a mantle, this one of a kind collectible is guaranteed to make a beautiful addition to your collection. Buy it now before it is gone.
NOTE: You will get two separate pieces of artwork with this purchase.
