From the 16th century a new art form developed in Iran and Mughal India - the composition and decoration of albums (known as muraqqa). Alternating sheets of miniatures, drawings and samples of calligraphy, formed a kind of miniature picture gallery intended for private contemplation. Studies of flowers became especially popular.

This "fantasy" of different flowers seems to grow from a single root. A natural approach to certain details in these flatly treated flowers is combined with decorative devices. The strictly symmetrical composition of tulips, roses and carnations in orange, pink and green is clearly silhouetted against the light background. The decorative effect is the main principle of design for this work. Beneath the bud at the bottom left is the artist's barely visible signature: ‘The most humble Shaykh.’

Floral ornamentation went on to become an integral part of both, Indian and Iranian book design, painting albums, architectural decoration, ceramics, textiles, and all applied design in general.
