I was so inspired by this miniature painting (from the Deccani region) that I decided to give it a contemporary spin off! I came across this image while researching for my internship at Pavitra Rajaram Design @teaonthebluesofa in the Gulshan i-Ishq’ folio which is based off the story of Prince Manohar and Princess Madhumalti and the poems and sonnets written in Deccani Urdu by the famous Sufi poet Shaikh Sayyid. These are at the @philamuseum and @metmuseum 
“Samutpatana,” in sanskrit means rising, ascending, and flying together, to reach the highest within ourselves
