The composition of this scene is inspired by earlier Mughal imperial narratives. The figure here of Faridun is depicted like a Mughal Emperor. The feathered peaked hat worn here by Faridun is strongly reminiscent of that of the Mughal Emperor Humayun. See for example a depiction of Humayun from a miniature sold in these Rooms, 26 April 1991, lot 54, which depicts the Emperor receiving dignitaries seated cross-legged in a very similar setting.
For a similar enthronement scene from the Divan-e Anvari which is of comparable composition to our own minaiture see S. C. Welch, The Art of Mughal India, New York, 1976, pl. 4B, p. 26
