Superb post-Gupta near-life-size 5-7th century stone head from a high-level collector who donated much of his collection to the Cleveland Museum of Art in the 1980s. He did not have a paper trail that permitted him to donate this piece in the same tax credit as the others, so I was able to purchase it in the early 1990s along with another remarkable stone piece. Shows expectable wear, but this only enhances his expressiveness and beauty...

Masterpiece!- Pre-10th C "Buddha as a Prince" from area north of India, and likely dating from somewhere between the 5th and 10th centuries, from a small kingdom Himalayan Kingdom that no longer exists. Note the INCREDIBLE quality and detail- Look closely at the TINY extremely early Ganesh figures on base- they are remarkable, as are the equally diminutive rams, Urns, and other decorative elements...

From the old capital of Kandy in the hill country of Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, this primitive bone carving represents a Singhalese king. Carving on the face and upper body of the figure is quite primitive and contrasts with finer detailing in the swirling patterns on the long skirt, which ends in carved, comb-like teeth. The surface of the large, heavy bone is darkened with age except for one area on the right near the hand, which is white and worn smooth...

Silk Road Gallery
A synthesis of strong Mughal influence with the Mewar Rajasthani school of painting, this early 20th century miniature depicts a woman dressed in a filmy costume sitting on a balcony playing a string instrument. The peacock chair suggests a royal courtyard, which overlooks water flanked by white palaces with a green hill beyond. Small flowers and delicate Urdu calligraphy border the top and bottom of the scene. The work is done in natural pigments on an Urdu book page...

From Rajasthan, painted in the Mewar style, this miniature depicts two members of a royal household on a picnic. They are attended by three servants--one whisking away flying insects, one pouring wine from a flask and the third holding another flask. The seated couple are sharing a cup of wine. All five figures stand out in stark contrast to the dark gray/green forest that surrounds them. Two lines of Urdu calligraphy float in gold-colored paint across the top of the miniature...

A Rajasthani botanical miniature on handmade paper by Bikaner artist Raju Swami is green and gold with deep gold flowers shading to orange/red. An exotic white butterfly hovers over the meticulously veined flowers. Bikaner, a remote walled desert town in western India, has a miniaturist tradition in both Mughal and Rajasthani styles. This artist, who grinds his own mineral colors and makes his own brushes that sometimes consist of only a few squirrel hairs, produces particularly fine botanicals...

A gorgeous Indian dancer strikes a pose of pure attitude in this classic 19th century Indian miniature of the Rajasthan School. Of the various Indian schools of painting, Rajput and Rajput-Mughal styles have, in our view, the most enduring appeal. This Rajput work demonstrates the look of languorous elegance characteristic not only of that school of painting but of the architecture of palaces and temples that still exist throughout the state of Rajasthan...

A miniature painted and signed by Bikaner artist Raju Swami contemplates a man spinning thread. Done in soft blues, greens and browns, the study is in Bikaner style, and is soft and quiet. The man crouches on the ground, stares pensively at the cotton in his hand, and appears to be thinking thoughts thousands of miles removed from his task. The miniature, signed lower right, is in perfect condition. Dimensions overall: height 7" (18 cm), width 5" (12 cm)...

A miniature from Mandawa in the Shekhawati Region of Rajasthan is focused on just one subject--a kneeling musician. The single subject and muted colors demonstrate differences between Indian miniature schools of painting that were heavily influenced by Mughal style and those that were not. Here there are no strong Mughal colors, intricate patterns of scrolling and textiles, flowers, birds and people filling the space...

A mid-19th century Indian miniature painting from Rajasthan depicts Sawai Man Singh, who was Maharajah of Jaipur more than 200 years ago. The strong influence of Mughal style is evident in the exquisite detail of the gold designs on the sword, floral patterns on the shoes, scarf and hem of the robe and in the pose of the subject in profile. Tiny gold designs cover the gold robe, and fine gold lines radiate from a green nimbus...

Two peacocks perch smartly atop this early 20th century silver comb from the state of Rajasthan in North India. The handle is a reservoir for scented oil dispensed in small amounts as the comb is drawn through the hair. A cap between the peacocks screws out to allow the handle cavity to be filled. Etchings, each centered with a different flower and surrounded by foliage, cover both sides of the handle...
