This magnificent painting is an art form rendered in Kangra art style prevalent around the early nineteenth century, painted in a precise and naturalistic form; each of the faces are well modelled in a side profile and shaded in delicacy. This painting is not just a single story, but a concoction of different lives and circumstances. Sita is represented as a silent power of suffering and sacrifice, as, when she was abducted by the demon Ravana, her consort Ram and brother-in-law, Lakshman took revenge against him and killed him to rescue Sita, but to be accepted again with that same chastity and queenship by the people of Ayodhya and Lord Ram himself, Sita had to pass through many challenges.
When Sita was asked to undertake the fire ordeal again, after she returned to the kingdom with her sons, she was revived of the previous emotional traumas and hence prayed Mother Earth to embrace her if she had been true to Rama in mind, speech and action. This painting is a depiction of what happened after this prayer; ground beneath her feet split wide open and Mother Earth perched on her bejewelled throne ascends out and spreads her arms beckoning Sita to leave this unworthy world and before anybody could react, she enters the depths; Lord Rama, colored in deep blue seems engulfed in grief on realising the current scenario.
The artist has amazingly portrayed the vibrant color combinations and the densely populated area, where each and every person of the kingdom and outside, is painted in realistic expressions of shock and grief keeping in mind the focal theme of shringar. The painter has chosen for a dark and dull colored floral background as the border to enhance the primary scene effectively.
