Preparatory and practice drawings such as this one demonstrate the skill of North Indian court artists. The bold and assured lines create a benign but powerful image of the Hindu god Shiva and his consort Parvati. Shiva can be identified by the snakes around his neck, his knot of dreadlocked hair and his vehicle, the bull Nandi, seated beside him.
