Young woman chased by a dragon

A young woman is chased by a dragon coming out of the rocks. On the upper part of the painting, two armed figures are looking at the scene.

This manuscript page has been remounted on an album page with 19th century margins. The space devoted to the text of the manuscript has been covered with fragments of Mughal paintings of the same period.

Mughal Paintings gathered in albums or Muraqqa’ were often enlarged or transformed to fit the pages. The composition of the page and the treatment of the rocks can be related to manuscripts like the Anvar-I Sohaili. One of the most famous and earliest illustrated example of these animal related stories dated circa 1570 is kept at SOAS in London.

Miniature : 12,5 x 7,1 cm
Page : 29,5 x 20,2 cm
