The artist has captured the story of the deer hunt with the fewest possible elements, in a way that is instantly recognizable and yet takes liberties with the classical tale. The forest is represented by two trees and a few sprays of foliage; the deer is a mundane gray, not magical gold; and Sita waits anxiously in a white marble pavilion, rather than a thatched hut. The vibrantly colored backgrounds divide the composition into zones that create mood and organize the narrative.
Artist Unknown, India, Central India, Malwa School

Balbir Sen of Mandi sits with his legs tucked under him against a purplish bolster on an oval orange carpet with a green border.  He wears a white garment with green borders and some jewelry:  a ring, bracelets, an armlet, necklaces, earrings and wears a green turban with a turban jewel across the front, surmounted by a black feathered aigrette.  A sword signifying his rank lies across his body.  He sits in strict profile with a heavy black beard and mustache.  The paper is plain and uncolored except around the figure, which is painted against a white wash taking the shape of the seated man and his setting.<br />Inscriptions in devanagari script are above the painting.<br />

An entertainer, shown larger in scale than everyone and everything else in the image, sits in the center of the composition. Tied to the strings he holds in his hand are two monkeys and a goat. The monkeys sit atop poles, and are entertaining the people around. The women hold bell-like objects on strings. Are these meant to be placed on the goat's neck? A white square is shown below the entertainer--probably representing a mattress. The sun's rays are shown in organe on the horizon, outlining the semi-circular brown mound framing the scene taking place in the foreground. Vegetation and greenery are shown on the left and right.
