This is a colorful and detailed artwork, illustrating a scene that appears to be from a mythological or religious story. The image is vertically oriented and features the following elements:
At the center, there is a large black and deep blue oval shape resembling a mound or hill, topped by what seems like a naked figure with dark hair. The figure is seated with legs crossed, surrounded by what appear to be flames or aura.
Beneath this central figure, we see a person wearing a patterned, multicolored skirt-like garment sitting on the edge of the mound. This figure has four arms; two of them are holding a white snake with a black head that is arched above their head, while the other two are extended to the sides holding objects that are difficult to identify.
The background behind the main figure is a deep red, fading slightly towards the top and the edges. The borders of the image are edged in a thick red line, indicating a distinct frame.
On either side of the main figure are leafy green trees, and four anthropomorphic creatures, possibly monkeys, positioned in various actions such as reaching for the mound or moving through the trees.
At the bottom of the image, two tigers are depicted on what seems like a ground covered in red and brown vegetation, suggesting grass or a rocky surface.
The artwork is visibly aged, with some cracks and wear evident, particularly in the black area.
This image is rich in symbolic elements and seems to represent a scene from a story, possibly related to South Asian mythology or spirituality, with the central character being of particular significance, given their elevated position and unique depiction. The presence of animal figures and flames suggests a narrative of some significance, possibly relating to a divine or supernatural event.
