This largely stylised formal miniature represents Lord Krishna, a timeless epic without a prologue and without an epilogue, as seated with Radha on a full blown lotus afloat Kshirasagara, the ocean of milk. The artist seems to have in mind his status as Para-Brahma – Supreme God, the same as Jagannatha in Oriya tradition which does not perceive him as one of Vishnu’s incarnations but as Vishnu himself, and hence chose to associate Kshirasagara, Vishnu’s usual seat, with him and of course Radha, a Lakshmi’s transform. Krishna, the cowherd, is not known to have ever shown any interest in lotus or garland of Parijata flowers, the attributes of Vishnu. Here in the painting both, the lotuses and the garland of celestial Parijata, are associated with his iconography. In the iconography of Vishnu Lakshmi is invariably represented as serving Vishnu. In Krishna’s legend, as well as iconography, Radha has a status equal to Krishna. While seeking to transform Krishna as Vishnu, the artist of this masterpiece preferred not to give up this status of Radha and despite that Krishna is Vishnu-like, Radha is only Radha.

This painting, rendered using Pahari art style as prevailed around the first-second decades of the nineteenth century at Garhwal and other hill states influenced by Kangra art-idiom, is outstanding in delineating strong features of both Radha and Krishna, especially the emotionally charged eyes. A partner on equal footing, Radha carries a ‘vina’ – stringed instrument, for accompanying Krishna when he plays on his flute. They are seated on a full blown double lotus laid over the milky waters of the ocean. The ocean-part around them has lotuses – plants and flowers, scattered all over. In distant background there is a mountain range, typical of Pahari artists and beyond it a clear light blue sky.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Hello, Just a short feedback on your new website layout: the old one was better than most of what you come across on the www, but you've managed to make it even better. I very much like the new look of the book pages and 'my gallery' pages. Thanks again for offering me a look inside the books. It's a big help for finding out if it's really what I want. Everything is perfect: the presentation of the items, your way of handling the orders, and the fast and always diligently packed parcels. Thanks to all at Exotic India, Walter

Exotic India is a fine organization to do business with. I have had the best trading experience and the very best customer service. The communication I have had with Vipin K. is of the highest quality; my questions and requests were quickly and professionally answered and fulfilled. A special thanks to the artist Kailash Raj for the beautiful art he produces; I have certainly been enriched by the way his art exemplifies the stories they tell. Many Thanks to all concerned.

An excellent website, as always. I do not even mention its content, which is beautiful beyond words, but I am merely referring to the great functionality and optimal design of your website. Links always work, the information is accurate and complete, images are very clear, including scanned content of your books. A pleasure to purchase from you.
Oreste, USA
I just wanted to extend my profound thanks to you for expediting my order. It was so well packaged and all import processes taken care of so the beautiful statue arrived in fabulous condition. It looks truly wonderful and I am so happy to have Lord Ganesh take pride of place in my home. Thank you again for your superb service. Best regards
