Four Love Scenes and a Landscape: Page from a Dispersed Raskapriya

The lowest register sets the context for the multiple scenes above; a couple stands on a terrace in a complex of buildings on the banks of a wooded stream. The couple appears four times; in each instance the chamber is distinct and the couple is dressed in different garb. The separation of these scenes likely relates to different types of interactions between lovers, as recounted in the Rasikapriya.
