Rama and Sita

Rama is shown enthroned next to his wife, Sita. Rama’s brother Lakshmana holds an umbrella above the couple while Hanuman, archetypal devotee of Rama, leans in front of them as a mark of respect. Both Rama and Lakshmana sport Prince Albert hairstyles, thus integrating prevailing Bengali style with traditional images.
