Fill your home with the beauty of this exquisitely detailed & stunningly beautiful hand-made bird miniature from the western state of Rajasthan, India.
This image was painted by famous Jaipur wild life miniature artist, Mr. Narendra Katara.
The precise manner in which the splendidly patterned bird is depicted parallels a tradition of descriptive painting that had been practiced at many royal courts in India since the sixteenth century.
The king bird-of-paradise is distributed throughout lowland forests of New Guinea and nearby islands. This so-called "living gem" is the smallest and most vividly colored among birds-of-paradise. The king bird-of-paradise is small, approximately 16 cm long. The male is crimson and white with bright blue feet and green-tipped fan-like plumes on its shoulder. The two elongated tail wires are decorated with emerald green disk feathers on its tip. An extraordinary courtship display is performed by the male with a series of tail swinging, fluffing of its white abdominal feathers that makes the bird look like a cotton-ball, and acrobatic movements of its elongated tail wires.
