    Research background
    There is a rich tradition of cultural, artistic and literary exchange and connection between Islamic Art and 'Western' Literary commentary and production.
    Research contribution
    This ekphrastic poem focuses on Mughal miniatures in the Islamic Art Museum's collection (Kuala Lumpur) in exploring and critiquing cultural representations of gender roles invoking tropes of pastoral tradition, competing mythologies and religious/political forces.
    Research significance
    The poem arises out of a CSU Global Study Tour to Malaysia, focussing on Islamic Art and instantiates the eye of a 'western' beholder viewing one particular painting as a window onto the wider collection and Islamic culture.
