The ruler of Kota, worshipping Shri Nathji at the left, is identifiable by his distinctive muttonchops.
Shri Nathji, the dark stone sculpture carved in high relief with its monolithic stele is here shown sumptuously dressed, wearing the square headdress of a bridegroom. His long tuft of hair, braided with flowers, swings to one side, while the end of his stole swings to the other, imparting joyous vitality and dynamism.
