This is a contemporary patua watercolour showing a female sitting cross-legged on chair. She holds a peacock on her lap and a pink flower in one of her hands. The peacock seems to be reaching out to the flower with his beak. She wears a violet sari and jewellary in her neck and arms, while her hair is open and rests on her back.
