Śilpaśāstra (iconography)

Amṛtamati (अमृतमति).—The Yaśodharacaritra narrates Amṛtamati’s extra marital relationship with a māhut, elephant trainer who was a good singer too. It is said that the queen, attracted by his music, used to go to meet him alone, every night, like an abhisārikā nāyikā, when the king is fast asleep. One night as the King falls asleep late at night, she is not on time to her rendez-vous. Enraged by her untimely arrival, the furious elephant trainer beats and tortures her.
