Did you know?

Raja Hari Sen adorns a Jahangir-style turban which was out of imperial fashion at the time of portraiture


In the portrait, the raja is depicted clad in a gheradar jama tied with a short-length pataka, a feature of Jahangir-era fashion. He stands confidently against a monochromatic fern green backdrop, with his left hand supporting his sword in a mauve sheath while his right hand reaches toward his dagger securely tucked in his belt.
