A King Attending a Purification Ceremony

View through Harvard Museums
The painting depicts a type of purification ceremony for a male youth, possibly a prince. He sits in a white, square basin while a male figure adds water to the inside of the structure. Steam, represented by gold lines, emerges from the structure. Kneeling in front of the youth is a king with his hands clasped in prayer. He wears a long white garland of flowers and a bow over his left shoulder. A quiver rests against his back. Behind the king is a priest holding out prayer beads. Rajput Style.
