Painting, nobles playing Chaupar, opaque watercolour on paper, Kulu or Bilaspur, ca. 1715
Painting, in opaque watercolour on paper, a royal figure resting on a rug leaning against a cushion. An attendant fans him from behind with peacock feathers. Three other players sit around a red chaupar board with pieces with one of the players moving a game piece. Chaupar is a game similiar to Pachisi, where the pieces race around a board towards a destination at its center.
