According to Indian mythology, when Shiva drank poison to save the world, Parvati was alarmed and gripped her husband's neck with both hands to stop the poison, thus earning him the name Viṣakaṇṭha. Many neo-Bengal School artists painted Indian mythological tales and legends, many of them using the wash technique, promoted by Abanindranath Tagore. Sanat Chatterjee builds the image of the mythological episode revealing not just the technique but also the gentleness in the figures and other elements that are shown.
