Did you know?

Multiple temporal scenes are depicted in one space: the king appears four times.

Description

The king, who has the title of “maharana” in this region, is identifiable by his halo. Standing behind a safety net at the corner of the white platform, he aims his arrow to shoot the boar and prove his skill and virility to his courtiers and priest. Two royal domesticated tigers are led into the arena at the top edge, and they are depicted multiple times chasing and capturing the prey.
