The Battle of Panipat
The name of this image is The Battle of Panipat. I don't know anything about this image except that it is colorful and mysterious (to me). Orange is my favorite color because it is bold and unmistakable. Elephants are my favorite animal, so I am thrilled to see one so beautifully (ha!) decorated. Also, the horses look more like the sea variety. More than any of the vivid colors and actions of the image, however, I am mesmerized by the two hugging trees -- one fragile and flowery, the other sturdy and part of a natural wall between the foreground and the background.
