The book studies INLAY art that developed in Mughal Architecture indigenously from Humayun to Shah Jehan (c. 1535 to 1658 ad). Mughal inlay is architectural and to brand it pietra-dura which was a florentine picture-art used on wooden furniture is a misnomer. This book also reveals that Orpheus Plaques which led the colonial historians to Florence to trace the origin of Mughal inlay were imported ready-made and there is no other example of Florentine pietra-dura.
