. English: This painting depicts elements of nature, all of them inspired by real species but rendered in a fanciful palette of intense colors. The bird perches on a fabulous rock that comes straight out of Persian painting traditions. The use of jewel tones in the painting suggests that it was made in the southern Indian region known as the Deccan, possibly in the state of Golconda. Both the poppy and the dragonfly show up in many Deccani paintings as emblems of the seasons. Bird and flower subjects were not terribly popular in either India or Iran before the sixteenth century, when Mughal emperors commissioned botanical and ornithological studies from their court artists.
