That's very unusual....

Many examples can be found of this 'COMPOSITE ART" in Indian Miniature Paintings of 17th-18th C

This is a beautiful paining.I have seen such paintings in Orissa.

Beautiful. ..The collector in me definitely wants to possess....any idea where to find these?

This painting is called Nav nari kunjar

There are sculptures of this format in Tamil Nadu temples.

Would Mr Batra object, Jayshree Shukla
