Description: This Mughal painting depicts the marriage procession of Dara Shikoh, son of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. It has its origin in Awadh and dates back to 1740 to 1750 CE. The painting depicts the marriage ceremony of Dara Shikoh, the eldest son of Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (1628-1658). He was married to Nadira Banu Begum, daughter of Prince Parwez, the second son of Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-27 CE) in 1633 CE. The Padshahnama of Abdul Hamid Lahori which is the chief source regarding this marriage informs us that the wedding was arranged by Jahanara, daughter of Emperor Shah Jahan and Sati un-Nisa Khanum, the chief maid of the late empress, Mumtaz Mahal. The wedding was an extravagant affair with the exorbitant investment of thirty two lakh rupees out of which six lakh came from the imperial treasury, sixteen lakh was contributed by Jahanara and the rest by the bride’s mother. In the Diwan-i-Khas, the hinabandi or the henna ceremony took place and in the Diwan-i-Am, the wedding gifts were exhibited for the members of imperial household and the nobles. Cardamom, dry fruits and betel leaf or paan was distributed among the attendants of the wedding.
Artistic Significance :- The artefact is a miniature painting, the dominant style of Mughal art done on paper. Miniatures were painted as illustrations to imperial court chronicles or just single paintings in albums. Despite its small size, the painting is a blend of bold colours, intricate details of facial features and jewelry dress patterns. It is bordered with a flower pattern. The brilliance lies in condensing three-dimensional figures within a two-dimensional landscape which was solved through a Jahangiri formula using a flat terrain as a neutral background for the figure arrangement and expanding it at top into a distant topographical vista.
