Indrajit on the battlefield
circa 1820

See Wikipedia for more about Indrajit.

From the Museum site: Painting, in opaque watercolour on paper, scene from the sixth part (Yuddha kanda) of the Ramayana. Ravana's son Indrajit is attacking Rama and Lakshmana with arrows that transform into snakes. Rama's bear and monkey allies are trying to repel the attack.
