The circular painting depicts Hanuman and Shiva together. It is a belief that Hanuman is himself an incarnation of Shiva. The painting depicts Shiva on his vahana Nandi, who has come to bless Hanuman, and gave him the boon that he shall never be defeated in a battle. The deity is depicted in mighty and powerful, holding his iconographic gadha and a kamandalu. The colours used in the painting are bright, contrasting yet complimenting each other. 

Historically, Kalamkaris used to be known as Pattachitras, an art form still found in neighboring Odisha and other parts of India and Nepal. The term "Pattachitra" translates to "patta", meaning "cloth", with "chitra" meaning "picture".Paintings made on fabric and fabric scrolls are mentioned in ancient Hindu, Buddhist and Jain literature. Under medieval Islamic rule, the term Kalamkari was derived from the words "kalam", which means "pen" in Telugu, and "kari", which means craftmanship. This became popular under the patronage of the Golconda sultanate
