A detail from the first picture (again, a priceless digital copy bought from the British Library). Check what a lovely group of winds on the second elephant

Same group of elephants from a different spot, excellent panoramic

If you are wondering where our Orchha infantry set is, well, I must say that there's been a change about it. We made them upon a photograph from Gertrude Bell who said that they were from the Orchha State. We learnt later that they were from Kishangarh. So I'll add them when it's Kishangarh's turn
