The Vine of Life Photo by Rodrick Lal — National Geographic Your Shot

 

This is a picture of a typical frieze on one of the undersides of the wall and roof of one of the entrances to King Akbar’s Tomb, Fatehpur Sikri in Agra, India. The lighting was really bad, but then I was able to take a decent enough snap.This frieze is obviously a restoration of the original piece of Mughul art. The intricate design depicts what appear to be bunches of grapes hanging from grape vines.
