Of these the better class are of elaborate construction, and covered with a gaudy canopy as protection from the sun's rays. The picture depicts a typical cart of Northern India. [end]
It is worth acknowledging the fine line and color of this image by the painter Mortimer Menpes, as well as the unusual rear angle.
