The inscription at the top reads:
"The nayika’s eye brows have grown and have become arched and seem to dance
Her waist is still slim but her buttocks have become larger
She is more thoughtful in her speech and there is hesitation in her eyes
Her gait has become steady
O! Krishna you need to be patient for a little while longer as youth has driven out innocence from her ripening breasts."
(translation by Harsha Dehejia)
