Created by Lord Brahma as the most beautiful woman, Ahalya was married to an older sage, Gautam. Tricked by Indra’s seduction, she was cursed by Gautam and turned into stone. She was liberated during the Ramayan when Ram visits Gautam’s hermitage with Lakshman & Sage Vishwamitra and accidentally brushes his foot against the stone. The oleograph depicts Ahalya giving obeisance to Ram for granting her redemption.
