The four-armed goddess seated on a large white lotus bloom emerging from a red mountain range, with four caparisoned elephants bearing amrita vases in their outstretched trunks, their white bodies contrasting with yellow and deep blue rolling mountain landscape, with garland bearing cloud-borne vidyadhara above, and with princely pairs embracing below, each couple representing auspicious symbols and crowned with their emblems the conch shell and the white lotus.
Hugo E. Kreijger, Kathmandu Valley Painting, The Jucker Collection, Boston, 1999, p. 84, no. 29.
Compare the faces of the deities and lotus petal design with a Lakshacaitya paubha dated 1809, now in The Avery Brundage Collection; see Pal, 1978, pl. 129.
