Nur Jahan (Nūr Jahān) H10-2 from The Empresses

By Damien Hirst


‘Nūr Jahān’, defined by complex mosaic-like arrangements and a structural composition, is named after the multi-skilled de-facto empress of the Mughal Empire.

In ‘Nūr Jahān,’ Damien Hirst orchestrates a mesmerizing display of single or paired wings in vivid red and black hues, forming symmetrical patterns that radiate vertically, horizontally, and diagonally from the center. The square composition focuses on a central pair of wings, seemingly enshrined amidst a dynamic arrangement that recalls the architectural beauty of Nūr Jahān and Agra’s mosaic-tiled tomb.

The artwork’s transformative nature is revealed through prolonged study, with new patterns emerging, and large black and red wings encircling the outer edge, creating a lively, ever-changing portrayal reminiscent of captured butterflies in varied states of flight.

Laminated giclee print on aluminium composite, screen printed with glitter.

Measures 100 x 100 cm.

Limited edition of 3041 prints.

New as issued in the original packaging.
