Miniature: Seated Figure

Active selection in cart:
A central figure is seated on layers of geometric and vegetal carpets, wearing a short-sleeved robe composed of many male figures and animals that are constrained to the frame of the garment. A garment like a coronet draped with a white cloth is worn upon the head. The figure is holding in the right hand a small vessel with a bird perched upon the rim. Laid upon a small carpet at the feet of the figure is a bowl of fruit, two small vessels, and a tall, handled ewer with elongated spout. In the background (possibly viewed through a window?) is a large green mound framed by two trees in bloom, with clouds rendered to appear fast-moving. Date: 1800s. Record ID: chndm_1962-225-7.
