It is pretty evident that Muni Singh was intrigued by the subject of the Indian Mutiny of 1857. In many of his paintings, done in the miniature style in which he excelled, Singh painted many of the figures associated with the first major revolt against the British East India Company. He paints, in the similar miniature painting trope, a portrait of Tatya Tope, a general in the Indian Rebellion of 1857 and one of its notable leaders.
