Probably a portable shrine of a folk deity on horseback holding a peacock feather standard. North India, circa 1640. Opaque watercolour on warqa. 19.1 x 13.7cm (max)
In its architectural setting this figure on horse appears like an icon in a niche shrine. This indicates the picture may refer to a folk deity originating from local legend of a martial hero whose subsequent iconography has him on horseback.
