A strong sensual element runs through early Indian art, literature and folk tradition. This expresses itself in various forms including paintings of extraordinary beauty and variety, which were made for the royal courts as well as illustrations for texts.

This painting shows the tryst of a prince with wine and women. The prince, dressed in royal clothes and jewellery, also wears a fancy turban with an elaborate aigrette. He caresses the woman who is almost lying in his arms. To add to the intoxicating effect of wine and her beauty, she entices him with a flower. Resting against huge bolsters, they look a couple steeped in desire. Two other women, dressed in similar kinds of clothes and jewellery, hold wine cups in their hands. Pahari Art (often influenced by Mughal aesthetics), is concerned with the realities of life, with passionate love service, conceived as the means and symbol of all union and this miniature is a true example of such.

Architecture wise, this painting is based on an asymmetrical arrangement. Here we observe that the left part of the picture contains building portions with the nice, floral inlay work and a flat terrace. The right portion shows distant hills and architecture on the banks of a calm river. The sky, however, looks dark and furious.

The pictorial space is divided between painting and calligraphy, with decorative writing in black over golden bars.
