Depicted in the this delightful. Posed image of a Mughal Maharaja or Emperor adorned by the trappings of wealth. His silk robes and sumptuous jewels painted in exquisite detail as befits his. The pose of smelling a rose is a familiar one made famous by Shah Jahan and his beloved Mumtaz Mahal. Is this perhaps a portrait of Shah Jahan himself?
Is very much in the Indian tradition, in which generation after generation of painters recreate images that have gone before with, no doubt, Indian miniatures being used as inspiration in this respect. Tradition, an engraving is laid down on the back of the glass before water or gum arabic paints are applied.
This is then fired in a kiln ensuring the paint bonds permanently with the glass. For obvious reasons, they are noted for their sheer brilliance, stunning clarity and use of rich colours. Indian glass paintings celebrate all things. In their choice of subject matter.
Familiar themes being images of royalty, as here, as well as portraits of deities, mythological figures. Epic themes, icons, and both ornamental and botanical themes from nature. Other reverse glass paintings are available from lacewing-interiors.
