Shivji and the Mahua flowers (the stages of intoxication)

In this painting the artist depicts the stages a person goes through when he is intoxicated. Once Lord Shiva was doing penance under a tree he felt thirsty; he looked around for water and found it in a hollow of the Mahua tree. He did not realize that the water contained fermented Mahua flowers. After sipping some, he was euphoric, felt light in the head and became very talkative and chirped like a parrot. He could not resist and had some more. The more he had the louder and aggressive he got, it was as though he had taken the persona of a tiger. By this time he had lost all his senses and could not stand and started rolling on the ground like a wild boar.
