- Curator's comments
- Although this folio has suffered considerable damage, enough of the painted surface remains to show how in the 1580s and 1590s Akbar's artists composed scenes around large, floating blocks of text. The manuscript from which this page comes is in the Prince of Wales Museum, Bombay, India.
