Description

A "parat" is a flat dish in India used to mix ingredients that are then made to be sauces like ghee. In this case, the parat has the depiction of a couple in coitus, illustrated in much the same way the Kama Sutra is. The plate is worn, yet closer examination might demonstrate that some “censor” attempted to remove the point of contact between the couple, thus saving us from losing our innocence.
