Folio from a Ragamala series: Desakh Ragini. Amber, Rajasthan. Circa 1730. Gouache and gold on wasli*. 37.5 x 20cm
*Wasli is a laboriously processed handmade paper built up from layers pasted together with wheat-paste then polished smooth with an rounded piece of agate. It was created specifically for miniature paintings so that the paper surface did not warp.
