At the foot of the tree is a pond were a pair of fish can be seen facing each other. The fish (shaped like a yoni) is often considered as a symbol of fertility. It is also believed to be the first creations from the sacred rivers wherein it can freely swim and life, undisturbed by disasters like floods. Under the fish is a lotus flower which symbolizes divine power. Outside the pond sits a pair peacocks. These beautiful birds are also associated with power as they can eat snakes and survive the poison. Its eye-catching plumage does not only showcase its grace, but it is also believed to contain "eye" patterns on the feathers as protection to the evil eye. As a vehicle to Saraswati, the bird is also a symbol of love and beauty. The painting features soft hues of red and pink. Together with the signature Madhubani style of detailed and pattern-filled imagery, this soft palette creates a rosy picture of life and creation.
