Lithograph on paper, in this print, Mukherjee gives us a contemporary interpretation of elements of traditional Hindu iconography. In this work we see a semi abstract composition with a black trident and a black snake with a green eye and some Bengali script to the left of the design. The trident, snake and eye identify the Hindu god Shiva. To the right is a maroon rectangle enclosing a white ring and above it a star. The printing was done by Somnath Hore, one of India's most important modern artists.
