The art of miniature painting is divided into schools and sub-schools, depending on thematic content, style and colour palette. The Rajasthani school is conspicuous by its attempts at innovation. Besides other subjects, the Rajasthani painter dealt with scenes from everyday life, religious festivals and ceremonies and other mythological subjects.

This miniature painting depicts the pastime of the ladies at the royal court. These ladies who had no substantial duties to perform spent their time finding novel ways to amuse themselves. Dressed in rich attire, they are also adorned with exquisite jewellery. Their facial features, almost similar have oval faces with well-defined chins, sharp noses, shapely eyes and arched eyebrows. The rotating tops seem to have caught their fancy; the tops of same shape and size have varied patterns painted on them.

What catches attention is the angular architecture depicted in the painting. The parapets have sharp angles and the arches vary. The lotus pond also displays the same angular element ? the only smooth contours in the painting belong to the women in leisure. The terrace opens out to dense vegetation and the deep blue skies.
