Description

Depictions of the hunt in Mughal India often reflected the varied hunting practices of the period. The minutely painted landscapes illustrate the local prey and hunting weapons of the Mughals. These pictorial representations often provided a setting in which to place the king, thereby conveying his ability to exercise political authority and highlighting his role as a just and successful ruler.
