The blue four-armed Vishnu is shown lying on a gigantic pipal leaf with his left leg crossed over his right leg; as his female consort gently strokes his leg, he awakens from a long sleep. Another woman fans him. From his navel sprouts a lotus, bearing the four-headed creator god, Brahma, and rishis or sages appear in the upper branches of the pipal tree.  Vishnu has four arms carrying a discus and a conch in his back hands and the lower left arm is extended pointing towards the women at his feet while the lower right am is cross towards his stomach.<br />The iconography is further compounded by the image in the lower register of a tortoise at the bottom of the ocean of milk, bearing a mountain on his back. The tortoise is in fact Kurma, another manifestation of Vishnu, supporting the cosmic axis. Elephants have gathered to pay homage to him, while in a small inset at right, a worshipper pays homage to Shiva, Vishnu, and Brahma. A large red figure faces the scene to the right accompanied by small blue figures

<em>&quot;Lonely Fisherman at Autumn River</em>&nbsp;is oriented horizontally to provide the breadth of the river and emphasizes the softness of the mountains&rsquo; width as opposed to an imposing verticality...The main visual cue of the season in the piece is the seasonal poem of autumn, followed to the left by Itsuun&rsquo;s signature and seal in red in the upper right-hand corner.&nbsp; A more subtle suggestion of autumn are the birds in a migratory formation just above the surface of the lake...&nbsp;The only separation between the sky and the river in the painting is the tall tree just to the right of the center of the painting that provides a focal point, but even then, the void of the water&rsquo;s surface leaks into the edge of the mountain, and even lies within the outlines of the village...&quot;<br />
