Make an impression and get many compliments with this Moghul Arms artwork. Beyond serving as weapons of war, they also served as ceremonial items, the decorations on which could achieve such sumptuous and spectacular effects that the final appearance of the object has more in common with an item of jewelry than a weapon.
Islamic arms and armor were decorated using a variety of techniques such as damascening, gilding, inlay, gold and silver encrusting, as well as setting with jewels and enameling. This wonderful artwork of a saber or scimitar (long curved sword), decorated with a wide variety of motifs and figures captures the essence of Indo Islamic weaponry.
The artist has done a superb job of presenting the Mughal arms of war as visually pleasing ornaments for your decor or art collection. Buy it today.
