This velvet hanging displays the kind of approach to depicting floral motifs common in Indian art at the time. The flowers are shown head-on, facing the viewer directly rather than in profile or at an angle. This kind of floral motif occasionally finds its way into the art of Ottoman Turkey and Safavid Iran.
