An arm visible beneath the central chamber indicates that a smaller figure has been overpainted.
After a failed love affair, the daughter-in-law of the king of Banaras returns home to her husband. Her disheveled hair and lack of jewelry support her claims of insanity and hide the evidence of her true whereabouts. The woman is greeted by the king, who sits with one of his attendants. In the chambers above them, a group of women look on in surprise.
