Ragini Bhairavi, from a Garland of Musical Modes (Ragamala) manuscript

The intricate patterning and colors of this rendition of Ragini Bhairavi create a richly textured surface. The strategic use of gold pigment draws the viewer’s attention to fine details such as the base of the idol in the center, while the white temple and courtyard stand out against the surrounding dark green foliage.
