There are 15 panels in two rows, each panel with a caption. The captions and symbols in the panels reveal that this is a Cakravartin and his 14 jewels.

A Cakravartin or ‘universal monarch‘ has 14 magical ‘jewels’ – ratna – he can use as he wishes, which he needs to become a universal monarch. There is a standard order for the 14 jewels, used here. The first seven are either persons representing official functions that are useful for a king or animals valuable in conquest or battle. The remaining ones are objects.

This shows the universal monarch on the left, facing the first five of his jewels, who are all human beings. In the first panel is the universal monarch himself and an attendant with a fly-whisk, with the caption cakravartti.

  1. purohita – chaplain, priest-jewel

  5. strī-ratna – woman-jewel or chief queen
