A peacock hunter with his lady on a rainy evening
India, Hindur, mid-19th Century
The hunter wearing clothes made from peacock feathers, a dead bird around his neck and aiming his bow at another, his lady dressed in pink and gold carrying another bird, the gray skies with rain-filled clouds and golden ribbons of thunder, all in a floral blue border
