Flowers of Love

The frog and the bird (images a and b) come from the Babur-nama kept at the British Library.

Image c represents Jahangir contemplating the portrait of his father Akbar. The original, painted c. 1614 by Nadir az-Zaman, is in Paris, Musée Guimet. A very good article about *The Imperial Image* by B.N.Goswamy can be read here.

Image d comes from a hanging of cotton and silk, c. 1650-1700, kept at V&A Museum, London, U.K.

Enjoy Colouring the Froggies!
