Painting from an album bound in red silk designed fabric containing a complete set of Jaipur 19th century Ragamala paintings.
A forlorn haloed nayika clad in red and gold wanders about in a meadow with two garlands in her hands. Perhaps the garlands are for her beloved who has not come. Lotus covered streams in the foreground and background are separated by a green hillock between. The sky is dark indicating a late hour.
