Description: After gambling away their birthright, the five Pandava brothers (on the left) stake their common wife Draupadi and lose her. The Kauravas subject her to various humiliations and Duhsasana attempts to disrobe her in public
but Krsna through his divine power prevents this. In the background the blind old King Dhrtarastra dozes on his throne.
