Asavari ragini

A woman with a blue complexion sits lonely in a rocky landscape. Her hair is tied up in a bun and her clothes are only a skirt of peacock feathers. She does wear a lot of jewelry. Cobras writhe in her hand, around her foot and in her immediate vicinity. There are lotuses in the river. On top of a rock is a peacock showing off its feathers. A second peacock watches. With these elements the Asavari ragini is depicted: a jungle inhabitant who lures snakes to her.
