Gouache painting on paper from an album of eighty-two paintings of Hindu deities. Manikkavachakar shown addressing a disciple. The poet-saint sits on a pedestal shaded by a tree; his right leg hangs down, while his left, crossed over, is held in place by a yogapatta. In his left hand he carries a book and his right is in vitarka mudra. A tripundra (three horizontal lines) adorns his forehead.
