Illustration from a Ragamala series: Vasant Ragini. Mandi , circa 1840 - 60. Gouache and gold on paper. 28.8 x 23.7cm.
The Sanskrit text panel reads that is of the wife of Hindol the Ragini Vasanti. It desribes a beautiful woman anxiously waiting for her lord - in this case Radha waiting for Krishna - while being consoled by friends. It goes on to describe her turbulent mental state. With thanks to Rakesh Sinha for kindly tanslating the text.
