Presenting a rare and dazzling Rajasthani miniature painting you will not find elsewhere. It is a handmade depiction of a game of polo at court in the Rajput Empire.
Polo is one of the oldest team sports known to man. A game of central Asian origin, one of the earliest references to the game in Persia (Iran), known there as chaugan (meaning mallet), is in Karmamak-i-Ardishi-i-Papakan. It mentions that the founder of Sassanian dynasty Ardashir was adept at the sport.
In India the Mughal emperors first introduced the sport and which was later adopted by the royalty of Rajasthan.
The modern artist has executed the painting in minute delicacy with a marked attention to detail of the dazzling melee of elephants and the royal polo players along with some of the other objects common in polo. The art brings out the specter of the game and will make you feel like you are live at the royal sport.
Very traditional ethnic Indian artwork that brings out the rich craftsmanship and lifestyle of another era.
