These erotic miniatures are from a manuscript made in 1824 in India. In this miniature painting belong to the same sex education text book, which is written in a poetic form. Here, a Persian couple are shown copulating. As mentioned before, the most sentences actually rhyme in this manuscript. It seems this book was created as a sex education tool since it gives detailed information about different positions while making love.
