The call to God to bless the Fourteen Innocents

A comparable example, in which the figures are shown in Mughal dress, is in the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS), Mumbai, inv. no.56.61 (illustrated in Stronge 2010, p.187, pl.49). The mixture of influences on such examples can be explained by the international draw of the Mughal courts in the North of India: "Metal wares of great sophistication were made all over the subcontinent in a range of alloys and techniques. Craftsmen from all over Hindustan, and from Iran where outstanding metalwork was created in a vast range of types, would have found ready employment at the Mughal court" (ibid., p.187).
