The artist has depicted the gazelle and deer as a blackbuck and cow.
The Brahman perches precariously at the top of a tree as the hungry lion waits below surrounded by wolves and jackals. Previously, the lion’s other viziers, the deer and the gazelle, had counseled the lion to treat the Brahman with kindness. They appear again to save the Brahman life.
