Description

Two ladies, one clad in a transparent shawl and the other wearing a Mughal peshwaz, are flanked by a pair of deer under a flowering tree. The lady standing on a hexagonal stool is fondly caressing the deer while her attendant holds a vina, an Indian musical instrument. The scene is set against a solid mauve monochromatic background.
