The folio number 18 is written in black in the lower right corner.
Rama sits in front of the empty hut, while his brother Lakshmana explains why he left her alone. The Lord of Birds, the giant vulture Jatayu limps over a hill in the distance, still weighed down by the stones he swallowed. He approaches to tell Rama and Lakshmana that the demon Ravana abducted Sita.
