Description: Ragas and Raginis are melodies which 'colour' the heart and mind of man. While these musical modes are being heard their magical sounds evoke their archetypal images. These are painted according to iconographic types, in various styles. The lines on top of the page state that the Ragini is represented in the painting as a young lady. Though in love she shows anger. Her eyebrows are curved. 'As if Ragini Kamdhodi were angry she turns away.'
