Description: Many of Muhammad Shah's painters went to the Punjab Hills, where they infused the local tradition with Mughal characteristics. The painting shows a Mughal individualization of the faces and a Mughal naturalism in details such as the carpet and the red bolster. However, the leaf-shaped eyes, the smouldering palette, and the atmosphere, charged with violence, reveal the strength of the Basohli tradition.
