Indra and Jayanta Battle Krishna and Pradyumna
India, Kangra, circa 1800-1820

From Christie's description (catalog page): "With Indra astride his white elephant Airavata at center, Jayanta next to him in a horse-drawn chariot and both facing Krishna and Satyaki seated on golden Garuda, with Jayanta shown again above engaged in fierce battle with Pradyumna at upper right, the celestial inhabitants in their cloud-borne palaces at left looking on."
