A raja receiving a flower from a lady
This painting has a flat plain green background, with no details. The Raja’s muslim jama fastens on the left in Hindu style and his gold brocade paijama can be clearly seen underneath. His large katar dagger is tucked in his waistband. He wears several pieces of gold jewellery. The woman behind him carries a peacock feather fan, while the one on the right offers him a flower.
