  1. The more I look at this interesting painting(OBVIOUSLY a story behind it!), the more convinced I am it is illustrating a general game drive(tiger, wolves, bear, and is that a humongo bunny running out of the far right corner?), that, inadvertently or perhaps PURPOSEFULLY, some upper class citizens have been caught up in–an historical illustration of a genocidal political assassination? Although, not to be culturally insulting or anything here(ahem!), I can fully understand why the eagle might have confused that lady's hairdo for some mammalian varmint!….L.B.

  2. The story behind this scenario must be a strange one, indeed. I just noticed a second Hawk-Eagle (crested) on the far left, perched on the fist of one of the 4 demonic figures; the one without a hat has just released an arrow which seems to have struck the head of one of the 3 figures on the right side of the panel, who seems to be wrestling with the Tiger. Also, I noticed the tail feathers of another raptor protruding just above the tail of the central-figure Hawk Eagle. Perhaps it is covered by the robe of the woman/girl? who has been seized by same Hawk Eagle?….David W.
