Mermaids Fish, Quarter 19Th, Indian, Avatar, Kalighat Painting, 3Rd Quarter, Miniature

Painting by the Mughal artist Ustad Mansur from c 1625, which may be one of the most accurate depictions of a live dodo. Two live specimens were brought to India in the 1600s according to Peter Mundy, and the specimen depicted might have been one of these. Other birds depicted are Loriculus galgulus (upper left) Tragopan melanocephalus (upper right), Anser indicus (lower left) Pterocles indicus (lower right).
