On the terrace sits a couple, engaged in amorous sport. The man makes her
sip wine from a tiny cup held in his hand. She seems intoxicated already,
what with her limbs flowing in all directions. Big bolsters make them
comfortable. The man's armour lies abandoned close by. The 'hookah' (pipe)
which he was enjoying so far, is now neglected in favour of his beloved. The
flowering pots in the foreground and some fruits lying scattered have no
relevance. The lone candle burning bright fades in comparison to the full
moon above. The night birds attract attention towards the calm skies and the
dense foliage right beneath.
Mostly, the Bundi paintings are based on the asymmetrical arrangement. In
this picture, we observe that the left part contains the building portion with a
domed window and a terrace, while the right shows plain space.
