Komel Re Asawari
Asawari: 17th Century ragamala painting
the summit of the sandalwood mount
robed in the peacock's plumes

strung with pearls and ivory,
the variegated one draws the serpent
to herself from the sandalwood tree.
This proud one wears it as a bracelet,
her body ablaze with dark splendor.
