Bundi Shaili Miniatures- The first set of Bundi miniatures, a depiction of Indian Ragas, was painted at Chunar. Bundi excelled in its illustrations of Krishna-Lila and Rasikapriya. The blend of Mughal and Deccani art elements in Bundi style is unique. Ragamala illustrations, legends like Laila Mujnun, historical events and scenes of the harem and village life are favourite themes of Bundi. Fine colour combinations, compositional unity, delicate line-work, manipulation of diverse elements, a blend of ‘real’ and ‘imagined’, vibrant landscapes and a strange power to drag the mind impart to Bundi its stylistic distinction.
