Gouache painting on paper. An illustration of the discovery and installation of the image of Sri Nathji. In the sacred landscape of Mount Govardhan, Vallabhacharya is shown meeting and honouring the image discovered on the mountain-side. In the top left-hand corner, the earlier part of the narrative is shown when the cow is seen lactating over the hidden image of the god to feed the deity. In the foreground are the local villagers of Vrindavan, and indeed the houses of the village and its circular tank.
