The organization of compositional elements in depicting this miniature is simple and clear. The space is divided into three parts i.e. foreground, background and the central part of the picture. The central part occupies the major part of the painting clearly indicating that the other two parts are incidental and not relating to the theme.
Pleasure involving women and wine was the order of the day. Every prince maintained a harem teeming with beautiful women. The prince here seems enamored by the one lying on a low bed against the bolster. He kneels down to offer his lady love some wine. Other women too are hovering around, seeking attention.
The domed window, the flat terrace, the pillars with inverted lotuses and the projections are an integral part of Guler paintings. A small pond in the foreground and a colourful sky in the background complete the sensuality of the painting.
The lower and the top portions are divided to portray four important noblemen in a kneeling position. They are all painted in profile with similar arm positions, and wearing identical turbans and numerous pearl strings. Yet they are distinguished as separate identities due to their facial aspects. This miniature is unique as it uses one small pictorial space to cover various dimensions.
