Similarly, pictures, paintings or models of pigs, eagle, snake, owl, crow, pigeons, vultures, wild beasts, tiger, lion, wolves, bears, jackals, wild asses, hounds, etc., are also prohibited.
Scenes depicting poverty, injury, accidents, sorrow, terror, dead bodies, riots, fire earth-quake and mummies also should not be exhibited in a house.
