Watercolour painting on paper of Nanda and Yasoda, the foster parents of Kṛṣṇa. Both Nanda and Yasoda are shown standing. Nanda has blue skin and wears a red dhoti and a golden shawl over his shoulder. He has wooden sandals on his feet. He wears a red turban on his head and jewellery. He holds a walking stick in his right hand and a pot in his left hand. To his left is Yasoda who is turning a butter churner perhaps in reference to their profession as cow-herders. She wears a dark blue skirt under a golden transparent shawl. She is not wearing a blouse. She wears jewellery at her arms, neck, wrist and ankles. The painting is surrounded by a thick black line.
