A MUGHAL QUEEN AND HER MANUSCRIPT: THE RAMAYANA MADE FOR HAMIDA BANU BEGUM

ADULTS - ENGLISH

12 April, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
MIA is the proud owner of many of the illuminations and texts from the incredible Ramayana Hamida Banu Begum, a Persian-language translation of the original Sanskrit created in 1594 for Hamidu Banu Begum, wife of the second Mughal Emperor Humayan and mother of Emperor Akbar. 2021 sees the publication of a new book dedicated to this topic and unites all 56 images from the original for the first time. Join us to learn more about this remarkable manuscript as we welcome authors John Seyller, Marika Sardar and Audrey Trushke to our Webinar where they will talk about the project, the text and translation process and how the original manuscript was made. Everyone is welcome!
