The Seal of Marriage

Under a green and red canopy, the bridal couple sits on a platform and puts their hands around a ceremonial pole; left and right the wedding guests stand and sit before the open palace doors; in the foreground a collection of gold-coloured jugs. The scene is framed by a wide dark blue border and separated from it by white framing lines; in the top edge is an old Indian text partly in red, partly in white script.
