The name Dhruva means "immovable star", the north pole star. From the Srimad bhagavatam, an ancient Purana part of the hindu literature: King Dhruva who, upon being insulted by his step mother left for the forest to find the Lord at the tender age of five. After practicing meditation and severe austerities for five months, Dhruva achieved full concentration on Lord Vishnu. Visnu appeared to Dhruva from His spiritual abode in Vaikuntha. This is the scene presented in the artwork.
