Presenting for your personal collection a beautiful miniature Yoga art.
This rare painting invites wonder at India’s extraordinary artistic heritage and with it you will feel the magic and spiritual enlightenment of Yoga. The art of Yoga constitutes a visual archive that attempts to capture one or several of its attributes, as a philosophical school, a Hindu tradition, a spiritual science and an exercise regimen.
Like today’s scrapbooks, Mughal albums contain images linked by subject matter without reference to texts. The albums of Emperor Jahangir (reigned 1605–27) and his son Shah Jahan sympathetically deploy the figure of the yogi to project their vision of a diverse and harmonious empire. This modern replica of the folio created for Jahangir’s renowned Gulshan Album, is dazzling in its jewel-like colors, palpably present yogis, and atmospheric landscapes.
Impeccably assembled and enclosed in a flora fauna strewn border, this folio depicts, clockwise from top left, a yogic devotee of Rama with a peacock fan and a dramatically billowing saffron wrap, a black-robed Shaiva Nath with his brown dog, a group of ash-covered yogis gathered companionably in a banyan tree’s shade, and a mother cat with her kittens. The combination of yogis from different lineages alongside animals nurturing their young portrays Hindu ascetics as members of an amicable collective.
