Description

This page is from one of the most lavishly illuminated manuscripts, named after the temple library in Ahmedabad, India, that holds the largest number of pages. During the early 1400s, artists in western India became increasingly exposed to art from Western Asia and Iran, from which they learned techniques of painting in gold and creating symmetrical interlocking border designs and arabesque motifs.
