[Ashvakrantamurchana in Shilpashastra glossaries]

Aśvakrāntāmurchanā (अश्वक्रान्तामुर्छना) is another name for aśvakrāntā: one of the twenty-one mūrchanā (melodic mode) used in Indian music.—Its illustration as a Goddess (according to 15th-century Indian art) is as follows.—The colour of her body is golden. She holds a vīṇā (Indian lute) in right hand and a lotus flower in the left hand. Her bodice is of light-green colour, and the scarf is of saffron colour with a design of black colour and red flowers. She wears a trouser.

The illustrations (of, for example Aśvakrāntāmurchanā) are found scattered throughout ancient Jain manuscripts from Gujarat. The descriptions of these illustrations of this citrāvalī are based on the ślokas of Vācanācārya Gaṇi Sudhākalaśa’s Saṅgītopaniṣatsāroddhāra (14th century) and Śārṅgadeva’s Saṅgītaratnākara (13th century).
