Hand Knotted Antelope and Deer Hunt 6.6ft X 9.9ft Mughal Carpet

Select Title
This hand knotted carpet from our Erased Ancestry Collection depicts a hunting scene from the Mughal era. The Mughals used trained cheetahs to capture prey during their hunting expeditions in the wilderness. The metaphor of the hunt was also a potent image in Persian literature, in which the protagonist finally achieves a desired goal. The idea of the cheetah catching the black antelope—a frequently repeated visual trope—resonates with the desire of Prince Salim (who was passionate about hunting) to capture the throne of the Mughal Empire from Akbar, his father.
