Fig. 3: Courtiers in Procession, from the Chitra Mahal, pp. 28-29. When going to battle or on a hunting expedition, traveling to a shrine for worship, or simply moving between palaces, the ruler was often accompanied by a huge entourage. The many processional scenes shown here are thus reflections of common, familiar events that celebrate the ruler's power and resources. Detail from a long frieze at the top of the walls of the veranda seen in fig. 01, top right.
