The Mughal emperor Jahangir (ruled 1605 to 1627); was fascinated by the flora
and fauna of India. A long lasting tradition of exquisite plant and animal
studies emerged under his vigorous patronage. These paintings were influenced by
both Iranian miniature paintings and contemporary European conventions for
Floral ornamentation went on to become an integral part of Mughal and indeed
Indian 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 Lily
or Glory Lily (gloriosa superba) or ‘zambaq’ in Persian. Found in Asia and
Africa, the flower has inward curving, wavy edged petals of a brilliant yellow
color which changes rapidly to red.
The flower’s stem and slender curving stamens are also precisely observed
and elegantly arranged, in the manner of a botanical drawing.
