Description A woman with a giant torch mesmerizes a deer. She may not be a member of the Bhil tribe (though her skirt resembles a Bhil skirt) but a lady of the court, indulging in a nocturnal adventure. This must have been a memorable event, with its own special mood, which the court artist was asked to preserve.
