The Jackal Raja’s Court

Based on an Indian saying that even in the jungle even the jackal can be king. The painting is based on two tales, the top one shows a royal figure sitting on a divan with two attendants and the bottom one shows a court scene with two creatures probably foxes about to be passed judgement on by the Raja jackal.
