The image presents a Khakha (technically a term used for preparatory sketches / studies before the actual making of the Pichvai) depicting Shri Dwarkadish ji. Dwarkadish ji is a form of Krishna, and this deity is one of the seven main deities of the Pushti marg, the main deity being Shrinathji of Nathdwara. Dwarkadish ji is worshiped at Kankroli, a town near Nathdwara, Rajasthan. The priests perform the service at this altar, and a large crowd of visitors / devotees awaits for the lord’s darshan.
While most of the women devotees are dressed in traditional Indian clothes, the men’s clothing displays a far greater variety, spanning from traditional dhotis and kurtas, to slightly more westernized forms of upper garments and headgear.
