A woman longing for her lover – Dewaruta ragini

On a terrace in front of a house, a young woman sits with her arms stretched above her head turned back, on a white cloth covered with trays and carafes of food and drink, carried by a servant to her left; behind the terrace a tree with different colored birds, behind it a flat green field. Around the image a narrow band in yellow with black framing lines and a red border with a white framing line; above the image a strip of yellow with a text in Indian script.
