Indian - Ragini Saindhavi - Walters W905

description

Summary

The Sanskrit text at the top describes the dancing woman in the doorway, who personifies the musical mode ("ragini") called Saindhavi:

Wearing bangles on both hands and making [viewers] completely intoxicated, here comes the smart and happy girl Saindhavi, with movements [as graceful as] an elephant's.

Clad in a red blouse, skilled in lovemaking, and adorned with breasts like waterpots and lotus-petal eyes more beautiful than an antelope's,

this is Saindhavi Ragini.
