The prince travels armed with bow and arrows, sword, and dagger.
This painting commemorates the nearly 600-kilometer journey of Mathu Singh on horseback from the tiny principality of Jatoli in eastern Rajasthan to Udaipur, capital of the powerful Mewar Kingdom. The young prince wears a white transparent muslin, and his stallion rears on his hind legs, marking the beginning of the ride. A heedful royal servant gently waves a fly-whisk, which indicates the rider’s royal status.
