Mughal

 

Jali screens were frequently used in Northern India for a variety of architectural features: in windows, room dividers, terraces, balconies, platforms, and railings around thrones. They are among the glories of the Taj Mahal, the supreme example of royal Mughal architecture and one of the great achievements of humanity. By increasing the scale of his Jali paintings to the proportions of his Mughal series, Naifeh honors this grand tradition of Islamic art and architecture.
