An illustration from a Devi Mahatmya series: Suratha and Samadhi seek advice from Medhas

I will explain these posts in the last one… The 1810-1820-dated illustration from a Devi Mahatmya series, where Suratha and Samadhi seek advice from Medhas, was “acquired” by someone “in the United Kingdom” on the 6th of November 2013. However, it comes from the nineteenth-century Royal Mandi Collection, so we can be confident that it has been securely sourced.

Its auction estimate is $15,000-20,000.
