Kailash Raj has portrayed his best skills in this painting; framed in a sober dark floral border that contrasts with the entire light colored background of the painting. Pictured in a vast sandy land that meets the bright sky at horizon, Devi sits on a full blooming lotus on her distinctively styled royal throne, covered by a large parasol at the top; garbed in strikingly colored attires, she holds her popular weapons- chakra, bow, trident and a conch in all her four hands respectively to eradicate stress, sufferings and sins and award people with grace, bravery and courage; ornated with precious jewels and the divine crown, stone studded and decorated with a crescent moon at the side.
This painting continues to be revered in the modern era, where the goddess is viewed as central in Shaktism and Shaivism Hindu traditions. The Trinity (Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva) can be seen worshipping her along with other bhakts fanning and paying obeisance to her and a tiger, symbolic of strength, courage and willpower sits in front of her throne. The painter has professionally used his brush strokes while forming these divine faces in their accurate iconography and splendour. Minute details of the color and style of their clothes, weapons, ornaments and other accessories enhances their realistic forms and expressions.
The painter has chosen for a soothing light background and the heavenly white colored floor that accentuates other colors in their best forms. The water pot, lotus flowers, diya, aarti plate and other puja items invite the cosmic aura of the place. The delicacy and accuracy of designs, shapes and patterns evaluates its natural aesthetics.
