Devotional paintings on cloth (see also F1998.13) originally hung within a south Indian temple dedicated to the Hindu god Vishnu. This painting depicts a nobleman with his hands clasped in the worshipful anjali gesture. It is likely that this noble devotee commissioned the paintings to express and proclaim his piety.
