The painting depicts Krishna dancing on the multiple hoods of Kaliya, holding him by the tail. Seeing the pitiful condition of their husband, the wives of the serpent, known as the nagapatnis, offer respectful obeisance to Krishna whom they recognize as the Supreme Lord. Offering flowers and garlands, they try to appease Krishna for forgiveness and mercy. The beautiful maidens are human torso upwards and their lower body is serpentine. Wearing short cholis and ornaments, they look regal. Reacting to their prayers and pleas, Krishna, banished the snake from the area, and pardoned his life in a merciful gesture.
This tale of Krishna subduing the serpent Kaliya is narrated pictorially in black and white. Using line as his only tool, the artist has displayed rhythm and balance in his composition. The overhead trees and the curvilinear clouds above compliment the ripples in the water below, reiterating harmony.
