When Kansa invites Krishna and Balarama to Mathura for a great festival, the invitation actually is a ruse to annihilate the two brothers. Towards this end an elephant named Kuvalayapida is first let loose upon them. Not surprisingly, he was no match for Krishna and Balarama. After having slain the creature, the duo uprooted the tusks of the animal, which can be seen in their upraised hands in this painting. Using these tusks, stained pink with the blood of the elephant, as weapons, the brothers here combat two huge wrestlers sent by Kansa, named Chanur and Mushtika. Krishna takes on Chanur while Balarama thrashes Mushtika.

The energied movement of the two brothers is symbolized by their flowing scarves, and the mountainous forms of the two wrestlers seem to succumb to the pressure being applied to their necks by the two heroes. The villains bleed profusely and it is obvious that life is slowly deserting them. The stark background heightens the action packed composition.

This painting is achieved in the Basohli style. The Basohli style of painting, characterized by vigorous use of primary colors and a peculiar facial formula, prevailed in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries in the foothills of the Western Himalayas in the Jammu and Punjab States. The earliest paintings in this style have been dated to the time of Raja Kirpal Pal (1678-93).

This episode occurs in detail in the Shrimad Bhagavata Purana, X.44.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.

Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
