The Pandava brothers do battle with the King of Anga, 1598,
from the Razmnama
A detail of The Pandava brothers do battle with the King of Anga, 'Razmnama', 1598, India.
This illustration comes from a dispersed manuscript of the Razmnama, a Persian translation of the great Hindu Mahabharata epic made during Akbar's reign.
It depicts the Pandava brothers and their allies in a battle with the king of Anga in Bengal.
The work was probably commissioned by Akbar's leading minister, Abd ur-Rahim Khankhanan, and executed by artists trained in the imperial studio.
Artist: Mohan, Son of Banwari (active c. 1598).
