Frogs Are Frogs

These images are inspired by four Indian miniatures of the Mughal Era (1656-1857).

The first image (upper left) represents Prince Selim, the future Emperor Jahangir, on his throne.
Painted by Mansur and Manohar, 1605 ca., it is kept at the Institute of Oriental Studies, Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The second, third and fourth images are inspired by miniatures of the Vaqi'at-i Baburi (Babur-nama), translated into Persian and illustrated around 1590 under the reign of Akbar. They are kept at the British Library.

Enjoy Colouring the Froggies!
