Krishna's foster parents, Yashoda and Nanda search for him after he has jumped into the Yamuna River. The surrounding figures are cowherder friends with whom Krishna had been playing a ball game. Works in provincial versions of the Mughal style were probably made for the lesser Mughal nobility at court as well as for the Rajasthani feudatory rulers.
