Indian artists and poets have showed exceptional ingenuity in weaving around the sportive Radha and Krishna hundreds of modes and ways of the love-game. They manifested in Radha and Krishna every situation of love that they could have thought of. Here in the painting divine lovers Radha and Krishna have been represented in mutually exchanged attires, Radha wearing Krishna’s Pitambara – yellow wear, and his Kulhadara cap crested with peacock feathers and his long white Vaijayanti and his lotus flower in hand, and the blue-complexioned Krishna, Radha’s red zardozi lehenga and golden odhani, and even the pendant on his forehead, an strictly female ornament, as also Radha’s earrings  and neck ornaments.

The scene is laid around the banks of river Yamuna, on one side of it is the habitat of Vrij, and on the other, a grove of trees laden with flowers and Malini creeper entwined around. Radha is coy by nature and with a bent face and with fingers of her left hand supporting his chin as a coy maiden does, Krishna is feigning coyness. In the vocabulary of art aesthetics this vision of Radha and Krishna is symbolic of one sharing the essence of the other. A fuller view of the divine drama the artist has painted them as standing against a highly romantic landscape, the green meadow rising up and down, a distant town, and a close-by grove of trees. Though lit like a full moon night, there is in the sky the half moon against a patch of blue clouds as also a few stars. The painting has the same softness of colours, landscape and figural beauty as have Kangra miniatures of Pahari art.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
