The Indian ivory miniatures on display in the Sponsel Room at the Neues Grünes Gewölbe – in the immediate vicinity of Dinglinger’s „Throne of the Great Mogul Aurangzeb“ – focus on the Mughal ruler Akbar II. (r. 1806-1837), a descendant of Aurangzeb and the Sikh ruler Ranjit Singh (r. 1797-1839), known as the „Lion of Punjab“, flanked by further figures and scenes.
