Image: Hanuman Brings the Mountain

Hanuman Brings the Mountain
(British Library: Mewar Ramayana)

You can read about Hanuman lifting the mountain at Wikipedia. From the Library site: Hanuman has flown to the Himalaya Mountains. The mountain peaks are covered in plants and streams rush down their slopes to the river at their feet. The magical herbs, knowing that Hanuman had come to gather them, have made themselves invisible. But Hanuman, in his anger at being thwarted, simply breaks off the peak of the Medicinal Herb Mountain and flies with it back to Lanka, where its herbs cure Rama and Laksmana as well as all the stricken monkeys and bears.
