Akbar (in white, at top right) directing the attack against Rai Surjan Hada at Ranthambhor fort. The fort is perched on top of a steep rock cliff, and its guns blaze out across a void at the Mughal troops on the facing rocky outcrop. Tents are pitched at lower left, near the men who are constructing 'sabats', or covered ways, in order to allow the army to move nearer to the enemy. By Karan & Khem. V&A Museum
