Add a touch of beauty to your decor and/or art collection with this gorgeous Mughal style Lily floral painting.
Lily flowers are large, often fragrant, and come in a range of colors including whites, yellows, oranges, pinks, reds and purples. Lilies are a group of flowering plants which are important in culture and literature in much of the world.
Flowering plants and gardens are potent metaphors in Islamic culture. They evoke the splendor of paradise and signify the realization of perfection, likened to the spiritual path of grace.
Throughout the Islamic world, architectural surfaces, textiles. and luxury objects abound with floral imagery. Paintings from the Muslim kingdoms of India are celebrated for their sometimes abstract, but always wonderful representations of over-sized, flowering plants.
From the 17th century onwards, under the Mughal dynasty, flower and leaf forms became a popular art subject. This is partly due to the personal taste of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-1627) who had a great love of nature and was very interested in capturing plants and animals on paper.
In this wonderful artwork, by placing a colorful plant against a solid background and floral border, enlarging its scale and isolating it in the center of the painting, the artist has created a stunning floral portrait.
