Ornaments that would make any woman happy to possess are painted on a staid ochre background. Jewellery has been a woman's best friend and every part of a female anatomy has an ornament to beautify with the head ornament that decorates her hair; one that falls gracefully over her forehead; the nose ring, the earrings, and as we go down, we see her hands with rings, bracelets, armlets; not to forget the necklaces that beautify her swan-like shapely neck. The feet that fall obligingly on the ground have toe-rings and anklets. All the above-mentioned jewellery items are painted, scattered on the pictorial space. Amidst all this richness is painted a Rajput king, mustachioed, wearing a stylized turban, himself laden with jewellery. A semi-circular strong line captures the image of the king, stops just short of disturbing the ornamental' beauty of the painting.
