An image of Ganesha can be seen on the left wall of the sanctum sanctorum.
When this drawing featured in Sotheby’s 2011 auction of the Stuart Cary Welch collection, it was attributed as a South Indian study of a temple interior. The image is a drawing of an actual temple and shows Shiva and Parvati with Nandi. A separate sheet of paper attached to the reverse bears various invocations, probably added later.
