Nagini, the snake goddess, sometimes known as Manasa, is lovingly portrayed as a queen with her body flowing into a lyrical curve making her seem like the acme of grace. She is worshipped during harvest time, when snakes leave their lairs. She is simultaneously the Power of Destruction and the Power of Regeneration; people have often believed that in shedding its skin, the snake was reborn. Dressed as a bride with fancy ornaments, she is standing in a frontal stance with the face in profile. The head is given a big eye for vision. She folds her hands, holding an inverted lotus flower. Torso downwards, her form changes from human to that of a snake. Then onwards the snake body twists and turns in graceful curves. It is painted in bold yellow colour with a thick red outline and another one in black with white dots. The empty space around the body is filled with delicate stems bearing flowers and leaves.
Simple lines and applications of brilliant yet flat colours make this painting most attractive.
