18th or 19th century manuscript album of about 25 or so colourful painted miniatures. The album was produced in Western India (Deccani) and is accompanied by Persian language. The paintings of people and (?) Indian Gods are representational forms depicting male and female aspects of musical tunes. "They stand as a classical example of the amalgamation of art, poetry and classical music in medieval India."
