The roar of clouds

Ravana's son Indrajit stealthily attacking Rama's camp. The painting depicts a sequence of events and Indrajit is shown successively at four different places; first attacking from the clouds and binding Rama and his brother Lakshman with the deadly serpent arrow. Then he faces off against the monkeys who try to fight Indrajit by hurling boulders at him. Last he binds those monkeys with the same serpent arrows and then (not shown in the painting) Indrajit carries off Rama and Lakshman as prisoners to his kingdom in the nether world.
