    Two pigeons, Mughal, North India, c. 1650. A pair of Imperial Pigeons is shown against a plain ground. The male bird has gold rings on its legs, suggesting that these are prized birds in imperial possession. The sport of pigeon-flying was a favourite Mughal pastime. Over twenty thousand pigeons were kept at Akbar’s court, of which five hundred were classified as khasa or élite birds. Via the Ashmolean
