What does this mean?

Dear Rhonda,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be an ink painting on silk or fabric with the measurements of 44 x 35 inches. The artwork depicts a hunting scene with a shoot with horses and elephants hunting deer and tigers. This is a typical motif for North Indian art which was influenced by the Mogul Empire. This piece was made in the middle or second half of the 20th century by an unknown artist.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 50 to 100 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
