From a reverse image search, I found out this image is the front cover of the book Tantra : The Indian Cult Of Ecstasy Philip Rawson

The full image is below

This is a gouache painting of subtle body with its chakras

This image is found in page 86 of the same book. The image description in the book is given as:

47 The Subtle body with its chakras (detail). Nepal. 17th century. gouache on paper. complete diagram 140 X 11 in.

So, the answer is it is a gouache painting from Nepal dated 17th century explaining chakras in our body in detail.
