Gouache painting on paper. Agni, the god of fire, and another figure (one of his three sons?) are seated on lotus flowers. Agni is depicted with seven arms, two heads and three legs. He has seven fiery tongues with which he licks sacrificial butter. He often rides a ram or is seated in a chariot harnessed by fiery horses. His attributes, not included here, are an axe, a torch, prayer beads and a flaming spear. This painting is framed by a red and gold border, which has been adhered to the paper.
