Breathtaking miniature painting of a vintage flint lock rifle. These guns were very important weapons of the Rajasthani Maharajahs in medieval India.
The historic artwork is truly impressive by itself…but you will appreciate it even more when you get to hold and examine its richness under a magnifying glass.
The miniature artwork is done with gouache heightened with gold on wood with a black background. It is painted and modeled in high relief to resemble a medieval flint lock rifle with incised gold metal mounts and an inlaid ruby within a design of scrolling flora.
Relief is a sculptural technique. The term relief is from the Latin verb levo, to raise. To create a sculpture in relief is to give the impression that the sculpted material has been raised above the background plane.
The dazzling clarity of the art is achieved by a special embossing technique that uses thousands of color dots to skillfully hand paint every detail of the subject. The end result is a dramatic portrait that is precisely sculpted with lifelike realism.
The artwork is signed by artist and is on wood, 10 in. wide and 6.5 in. tall and 0.25 in. thick (25.5 cms X 16.5 cms X 0.5 cms).
