Loving Couple with Attendant (Primary Title)
This relief depicts one of Indian art's most ubiquitous themes, the loving couple. A courtly male wearing elaborate jewelry and a tall headdress sits on a large couch. He caresses his partner's breast while tugging on her long braid. Her right hand also reaches around to touch his hair. A female attendant stands by, aloofly fanning the loving couple.
