The central flower is a scarlet-colored poppy, famed for yielding opium.

Description

Studies of flower arrangements in the European manner became a popular subject in Indian miniature painting during the reign of Mughal emperor Jahangir (reigned 1605–27). Inspired by imported prints, Indian artists rendered them in Mughal fashion. Here, in a painting made at a Rajasthani court, the entire bouquet grows magically out of the ground from a single stem.
