The Mughal emperor Jahangir (ruled 1605 to 1627); was fascinated by the floraand fauna of India. A long lasting tradition of exquisite plant and animalstudies emerged under his vigorous patronage. These paintings were influenced byboth Iranian miniature paintings and contemporary European conventions forbotanical drawings.
Floral ornamentation went on to become an integral part of Mughal and indeedIndian book design, painting albums, architectural decoration, ceramics,textiles, and all applied design in general, well into modern times.
This painting depicts a strikingly colored climbing plant, the Flame Lilyor Glory Lily (gloriosa superba) or zambaq in Persian. Found in Asia andAfrica, the flower has inward curving, wavy edged petals of a brilliant yellowcolor which changes rapidly to red.
The flower s stem and slender curving stamens are also precisely observedand elegantly arranged, in the manner of a botanical drawing.
