    Major works: Jahangir Preferring a Sufi Sheikh to Kings, ca. 1620; Jujha Singh Bundela Kneels in Submission to Shah Jahan, 1630.

    Jahangir Preferring a Sufi Sheikh to Kings

    A circa 1620 allegorical painting by Bichitr, in which Emperor Jahangir sits on an hourglass that represents his life.
