The son of Shiva (note the trishool tattooed at the root of His trunk) is clad in a marigold-coloured dhoti. A bunch of gold studded with rubies and emeralds betray His princely stature. A garland of pink and white flowers rests on His adorably chubby torso, clearly an offering of His numerous devotees. He is ekdanta (single-tusked), because He had to scribe the Mahabharata at the command of Vyasa.
The halo behind His head resembles the gentle glow of the sun setting over the tropics. The inky purple background is reminiscent of the skies that turn this colour once the cows have been home for a while. The Lord is seated on velvet-cushioned asana, the greens and golds of which match the sumptuous colours of His silks.
