Krishna is seen as a little baby sucking his toes, shown on a banyan leaf. The faint sketches of two male and one female devotees display the pencil skill. This scene from the Bhagvata Purana refers to the deluge when the entire world is submerged under water. Then the God appears as a child, noticed by Markandya rishi and rescues the world.
