Varaha (Vishnu as wild boar) riding an elephant

An elephant with chains on the right hind leg walks through a stylized landscape, on its back a palanquin with a four-armed figure with a boar’s head; the depiction partly runs over the decorative bands. Decorative bands with motifs in black and white and trimmed in red.
