Maharana Pratap Singh. diorama 54mm.


Battle of Haldighati in 1576 where Rajput Maharana Pratap Singh, on his Marwari horse Chetak, attacked the Mughal leader Man Singh. Marwari horse in false elephant trunk like baby elephants which the adult animals instinctively would not attack. Chetak reared high in the air and planted his hooves on the forehead of Man Singh's elephant. Pratap threw his lance at Man Singh, who ducked in time. The blow fell on the mahout.
