Birds of Gurbani, Baaz (Falcon)
“The Baaz is a bird representing power and strength. In the lines chosen for this piece, the Baaz is said to pounce on its prey when it least expects it just as something unexpected or unwanted might happen to us in our lives.
A bird of prey seen in many miniature paintings as the chosen royal bird by rulers from different regions, the Baaz joins the Birds of Gurbani and adds a regal and majestic touch.”
