A Sikh nobleman seated with upraised knee, on a dais against a large mauve bolster, smokes a whiff from the long stem of his hookah - a puff of smoke emerging from his nostrils. He watches as his large hunting falcon, perched on his outstretched gloved arm, peers upwards searching for prey. A sardar dressed in white muslin, sits respectfully with pressed palms. Other courtiers attend as a gray-haired groom brings his lord's stallion. Perhaps based upon a depiction of Guru Gobind Singh, who is often shown holding a raptor and receiving a horse. The figures seated on a pink and blue carpet, outdoors on a terrace, the trees beyond devoid of leaves.
Grayish black inner margins, with salmon outer borders and mauve ruled lines.
