All buildings are decorated in tremendous detail; similarly the diaphenous outer robes reveal undergarments with fine floral patterns. All of the figures are very richly bejewelled, with ropes of pearls around their necks, huge rubies on their foreheads, bangles up to their elbows and of course, ankle and toe rings, earrings and every other possible form of adornment. Some gilt highlights.


There is Arabic script above and to the side of the painting.


Good condition.
