W.715, Single leaf of elephant combat
This single-leaf painting of elephants in combat was executed in India during the thirteenth century AH / nineteenth CE in an archaizing style referencing Mughal traditions of the eleventh century AH / seventeenth CE. The image of the mounted mahout, a person who drives an elephant, reproduces a popular theme in court painting in South Asia.
