The last piece in this show is a traditional dance, Simhanandini, in which the dancer creates a drawing on the underside of a canvas she is dancing on by dancing in patterns to pick up pigment powder underneath. This is then shown at the end of the dance by lifting the frame. Here she draws a lion.
