Both sinners have turbans unraveling.

Description

Themes of punishments of hell were popular in Rajasthani ateliers, and several courts commissioned paintings depicting infernal cruelty. The dark-skinned punisher pulls a royal figure from his terrace with chains and is about to smite him with his baton. A ferocious tiger can be seen ripping another man with his claws.
