Ketu, horoscope painting, Rajasthan, 18th century A.D.
"It is possible that this painting depicts the Hindu planetary deity Ketu, the personification of comets. Although the iconography does not follow typical representations of the deity (where he has a serpentine body), the two inscriptions identify the figure as this deity. The pencil inscription, ‘the dragons tail’ may refer to description of Ketu within the Ta’rik al-hind, c.1030, where the deity is described as the ‘tail of a dragon’" Company School, Patna, 19th century
