The artist of the Bundi School has painted an oft-narrated incident of Krishna's life. Krishna's playfulness and naughty ways gave Yashoda little time for domestic chores. Tired of him, one day, she tied him to a hand driven cart while she discussed village gossip with friends. Annoyed at being thus neglected, he kicked the cart. The kick belonged to no ordinary child; it overturned the cart, the pots of milk lay scattered as milk flowed from them. Little Krishna frees himself and rushes to his mother. The onlookers react in wonderment.
There may be no novelty in the theme but the arrangement of the composition and the chromatic pattern speak highly of the Bundi artist. The human figures are arranged diagonally, moving from left to right. They all exhibit some movement and activity, thereby, lending life to an interesting narration. Their clothes give the artist an opportunity to use brilliant colours. He has used turmeric yellow quite liberally.
The vegetation is not scattered all over the visual. It is concentrated in clusters neatly placed at corresponding angles, in varying shades of green. Above the yellow horizon starts the clouded gray sky.
