The Raja was probably in his early teens when this picture was painted.
A young raja (king) rides a brown stallion, larger than the others in the center of the composition. The speed of his gallop is indicated by the flying ends of the Raja’s turban. A group of his horsemen turn their heads around to admire his glory, while another party riding behind him follow their king’s lead in obedience.
