One of the most popular of the young Krishna's heroic feats in Vrindavana is his subjugation of the serpent Kaliya in the river Yamuna. It is important to observe that Kaliya is a not one of the demons sent by the evil Kansa to kill little Krishna. Rather, he is punished by Krishna for polluting the sacred waters of the river. Indeed it is one of the earliest instances of environmental protection in the world.

This painting, even though using a subdued palette of colors, is nevertheless a lyrically composed picture. The artist has given us a particularly interesting visual interpretation of the transaction. Krishna, agile and quick, as much as engages in a fight with the serpent as he performs a rhythmic dance, climbing as if the coils of the villain. Broad brush strokes delineate the waters of the river in the background, a shade slightly lighter than the color of the serpent; signifying perhaps his muddying of the holy waters. Below Krishna are the serpent's wives, who with suitable offerings and folded hands, have come to plead for their husband's life. Krishna ultimately obliged them by banishing the whole family to the deep seas, which was their original abode.

This painting was created in the city of Kishangarh, Rajasthan, which is often also known as 'çhotti Brijabhumi', or the microcosm of Vrindavana.

I fall in love with Exotic India last year when I found accidentally a beautiful blue kaftan with a little printed elephant on it. Since then I am a fan of this lovely place and I am sure that I will be a lifetime. I feel that my relation with Exotic India is special because I like every article, they are unique, made with passion and each piece relates a magical, mythical story. I want to thank you for your promptitude by shipping so fast my order, it arrived directly from India to Romania (Transylvania) on the fourth day after I have set my order. I did not expect it so soon, my heart was filled with joy by such an amazing surprise. I appreciated it! I wish all the joy and beauty you bring to me turn back to you!
