Catalogue Note

Within a white columned marble palace the nimbate (haloed) Guru holds darbar.  He is seated on a low bejeweled gold throne-chair as he receives an assembly of dignitaries petitioning him and paying homage.  He addresses their leader as his nobles stand behind. An attendant holds a morchal (ceremonial peacock feathered fan) whilst another bears a gold tray with a container of delicacies.  

With black inner borders within red and white ruled lines and mauve-pink outer borders.
