The erotic theme of these illustrations was perhaps influenced by Kama Sutra (Sanskrit: कामसूत्र pronunciation Kāmasūtra) which is an ancient Indian Hindu text widely considered to be the standard work on human sexual behavior in Sanskrit literature written by Vātsyāyana. The language of these illustrations is Persian since it was the language of Mughal court.
