The 16th through 18th centuries in India is known as the Mughal period. The Mughals, who were of Persian descent, populated north central India. During this period, a new artistic style formed that predominated art in north central region for 300 years. This resulted in highly decorative and elaborate patterns that were more Islamic than traditional Indian.
