A scene from the Bima Swarga story

A scene from the Bima Swarga story in the Kerta Gosa complex, Semarapura, Bali. The story relates Bima’s journey to the underworld to rescue his parents Kunti and Pandu (as seen on painting E074161). This panel shows Bima upturning the cow-headed cauldron to free the humans who are being boiled inside in punishment for their earthly transgressions.
