It depicts the Lord's much-celebrated victory over the multi-hooded naga (snake) namely Kaliya, who was banished by Lord Garuda to a corner of the Yamuna river. He grabs the serpent-villain by the tail and dances over his helpless hood, leaving His footmarks on the vanquished one. The waters of the dishevelled Yamuna swirl around them as witness to this historic episode. The same have been depicted with simple cloud-like curves filled in with a powdery blue blending out into white. The vibrant colour palette of the Lord's form in the foreground makes a powerful, aesthetic statement. The shocks of fiery orange vines that flank His expressive face, His superbly gathered composure in the midst of battling evil, and the matching peacock feather-crested crown and shringar, complete the picture of Hinduism's most charming deva.
