One of a set of paintings depicting scenes of Manipuri ceremonies and Manipuris. The field is divided into three vertical panels, each containing a male figure. On the far left, dressed in white, is a turbanned figure with a drum. In the centre is a figure similarly dressed with a cymbal in each hand. The figure on the right is dressed in yellow, wearing necklaces, a helmet-shaped cap and brandishing a yellow cloth. All three have decorations in white body paint around the neck.
