A wonderful original vintage travel poster from India depicting a starry evening with locals traveling on a lake in their Shikara.
The shikar is a type of wooden boat found on Dal Lake and other water bodies of Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir, India. Shikars are of varied sizes and are used for multiple purposes, including transportation of people. A usual shikar seats half-a-dozen people, with the driver paddling at the rear.
In the back you see snow capped mountains that could be Nanga Parbat, the ninth highest mountain in the world at 8,126 metres (26,660 ft) above sea level.
In very good condition. Some light edge wear and foxing at upper left border not affecting the image.
