You will get many compliments for your personal art collection with the addition of this rare Rajasthani artwork.
This extremely fine miniature on handmade paper with stone colors features Maharaja Jagat Singh of Mewar (Udaipur), offering his prayers to Lord Shiva at Jagmandir Palace temple.
The temple can be seen surrounded by lotuses which the devotees reach by boat after crossing the lake.
The Maharaja never took breakfast without having the darshan (blessings of God) at the temple. So he along with his nobles can be seen offering their daily morning prayers to Lord Shiva, wearing a tiger skin, and his cow (nandi) in the beautiful Pavilion of the Jagmandir Palace temple.
Different Gods and priests are seen coming from heaven on their vehicles with garlands in their hands to welcome the Maharaja and his entourage as they offer God their prayers.
A busy painting indeed.....and full of meanings and connotations that will provide hours of viewing pleasure.
