The heroine presents her pearl necklace to the peacock.
Gujari Ragini, a musical mode, is personified as the one who sings songs praising her beloved on experiencing pangs of separation. She sits on a throne outside a well-appointed chamber and holds her stringed instrument, the vina, in her right hand. Her songs have attracted a male peacock who dances to the tunes she sings. A pair of yellow birds take flight in the background.
