A scene takes place in a red box, lined with black and red diamond and triangle designs for borders. In the center, a woman sites with a child in her lap. She wears a spotted dress, her hair up, and a nose ring and bindi. The child reaches one hand and places it atop her head, and the other down towards her own upward hands. Surrounding them are seven other figures. One kneels before them, offering his hands up, and another fans the woman from behind. The remaining five figures seem to play together in front of the throne on which the woman and child sit.

The horizontal folio from a Kalpasutra manuscript consists of seven lines of text to the left and center broken by a squarish gold symbol framed in a red line and cusped blue lines. Gold diamond shapes framed in red are at the sides, with a vertical red line between the one on the left and the text. Between the text and the right diamond shape there is a painting consisting of three registers of figures against a red ground. The top row depicts three laymen wearing crowns, the middle two monks and a nun and the bottom row three nuns.

Vishnu stands with a slight sway to his body with his right hip thrust out, the tribhangha of “thrice bent pose.”  He has four hands to carry his attributes, his front two hold a lotus bud and a conch.  The back two hang down and rather than carry his two weapons are placed on personified figures of them.  At is right is the personified club and on his left his discus.   He wears a diaphanous lower cloth that is so sheer, it appears almost invisible, only the folds of the garment are articulated.  He wears a long garland down almost to his feet and a sacred thread to his waist.  He also wears various pieces of jewelry, including armlets, large earrings and an elaborate crown.  The whole is quite worn due to the way the image has been handled by devotees, who have touched it and applied various substances to it.  His eyes had been inlayed with silver to add  a certain realism to the piece.<br />
