Super Girls + Women: Noor Jahan Art Print
Art print of one of my illustrations in the book Stories for South Asian Super Girls. This is the portrait of Noor Jahan. She was a mighty empress during the Mughal Empire. She boldly led the empire when her husband, Emperor Jahangir could not. I decided to depict her with a glow around her head (a nimbus) – a nod to the way rulers of the period were depicted to show their divine right to rule. Depictions of Noor Jahan from this period do not include a nimbus since she was an unofficial ruler. But she really was the powerful leader of the Mughal Empire for many years so I wanted to show her with this element to signify her standing as a full on ruler.
