One of the last works that Ravi Varma painted and of the series that he was comissioned by the Mysore Palace.

The giant bird Jatayu attempts to stop Ravana from abducting Sita; indeed it is one of Ravi Varma's rarer works depicting a gory scene. This work hangs in the Sri Jayachamarajendra Art Gallery, Jaganmohan Palace, Mysore.
