The paintings depicts the approach of a princely figure on horseback. The finely caparisoned steed having just been brought to a halt, as if the prince had come suddenly upon the scene and become drawn to it. All eyes are trained upon him even as he gazes at the becalming countenance of Guru Nanak and his companions, Bhai Mardana and Bala.
Of special interest is the book lying open in front of the Guru and the presence of the musical instrument, indicating that a outdoor kirtan (prayer) was in progress before the royal encounter.
The image of calm dignity is superbly hand painted and captured in opaque watercolors with an antique finish.
The original art was done in the Pahari style in the family workshop of the famous Nainsukh of Guler, in late 18th century. The original art currently resides in the Government Museum and Art Gallery, Chandigarh, India.
