Two cubs lay beneath their mother, whose back is to the viewer, yet curves her head around to face outwards.  Her eyes are golden, and look out towards the viewer.  One cub looks up at its mother with closed eyes.  The mother's white whiskers stand out against the otherwise warm, golden tones of the painting.

Two distinct registers divide a page in half. At the top, a yellow-orange colored nude jina sits in lotus position upon a three tiered throne [a patterned blue level at the bottom on feet, with an orange section with gold and red decoration and a green level at the top with gold vertical stripes]. He sits against a red background adorned with a pattern of three white dots. The background takes the shape of an elegant cusped arch with a green and white pattern along its outside with a gold pattern at its sides. To the right of the seated figure a nude Digambara monk sits with his legs folded and one knee up on a less elaborate throne with a lota or pot at the corner and a crossed bookstand to the side holding a book with some devanagari writing on it. He raises his right arm and holds his left to his ear.<br />
