Facebook didn’t invent documenting the mundane

 

Several weeks ago now, we went to the Prince of Wales Museum (now known as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya). One of the exhibitions was devoted to Indian miniature painting, and I was quite taken with this one – “Balwant Singh getting his beard trimmed”, circa 1755-1760.

And from the same exhibition – although it is a terrible picture, I am in love with the jauntiness of this elephant.
