Folio from a Bhagavata Purana manuscript: Parashurama fights Sahashrabahu. Marwar, circa mid-19th century. Opaque watercolour with silver and gold on wasli. on paper. 17.8 x 38.2cm
Inside the modest dwelling (in the background) sit Jamadagni (Parashurama's father), Renuka (his mother), and either his brothers or pupils.
I would like to express my gratitude to Tarun Pant for kindly translating the text and Narmada Upadhaya for identifying regional elements in the picture.
