The elements that surround His central figure typically belong to the traditional thangka tradition. A solid-coloured halo, through which swishes the great tail of the Lord. An oval-shaped aureole, serrated from the centre outwards. Note the curvaceous motifs that are painted along its edge. An imposing vine with vibrant leaves and flowers grows to one side of the aureole, while dense undergrowth, the kind that are to be found in the mid-reaches of the Himalayas, defines the rest of the frame. Each of these aspects are decidedly thangka in style, and add to the divine presence of Lord Hanuman in this composition.
The dusk of the background is permeated by the rays of the luminous moon, a fine red lining setting off its glow. Note the numerous stars studded in the heavens that shine in homage to the glamour of Lord Hanuman.
