Literal meaning of Jatayu Vadham from Sanskrit is the killing of Jatayu.The painting by the Indian artist represents the exact moment when Ravan cut off the wing. After that Jatayu was unable to fly anymore and fell on the ground. Although, the painting doesn’t include the Pushpak Vimana which is present in the folklore, the essence of the scene represents them all flying. Sita is grabbed by Ravana in one hand while fighting with another hand. As much shame Sita is feeling to be in hands of other man than his husband, she is also unable to see the old Jatayu’s wings cut off and death. Thus, she has hid her face arms in agony.
