picture (art)

One of a set of paintings depicting scenes of Manipuri ceremonies and Manipuris. This one depicts a procession in which two men wearing pheasant feather head dresses beneath parasols carried by bearers are preceded by men dressed in white with triangular banners, bearers carrying fans and fly whishs, and followed by women dancing. Behind the procession is a row of white-robed figures seated at intervals along a structure covered with draperies.
