Vanaja begs Rama Devi to come back
Vanaja begs Rama Devi to return. Rama Devi is in the middle of her prayers. The altar is out of frame to the left, but a lamp in the foreground indicates its presence. Cotton wicks called Vottulu are used in oil basins to light these tall brass lamps which sometimes have several bowls of lighted wicks. Crowning the lamp is a peacock. The bowl in front of Rama Devi contains flowers, and the plate contains fruits, camphor, rice, turmeric, beetlenuts and Kunkuma - a red powder generally smeared on the forehead - all offerings for the prayer.
