This image of Krishna wearing long garlands and necklaces and a crown of peacock feathers is the characteristic Nathdwara iconography of Lord Krishna widely known as Shrinathji. The city of Nathdwara, south of Udaipur in Rajasthan, situated on the right bank of river Banas, was established in 1683 as one of the four seats of Vallabh sect, or Pushtimarg, of Vaishnava devotional cult propounded by Vallabhacharaya around the closure of the 15th century. Nathdwara is known alike for both, its distinguished art style and its Vaishnava cult of Shrinathji. For four hundred years now Nathdwara has been a constant center of great art and is known for its multiple art forms and art media. This Nathdwara iconography of Shrinathji is one of the most widely imitated forms of Lord Krishna.

This picture represents Lord Krishna in an unusual deity form. He has been rendered here lifting Mount Govardhan, the most worshipped form of Lord Krishna, though the representation is only symbolical suggested by the movement of his raised left hand and its finger. This painting is in great conformity to the Nathdwara deity form of Shrinathji. As the tradition has it, mother Yashoda has been represented here as Purnaghat covered with a piece of red cloth. The gopis on his sides is also a usual feature.

The decorative element is by and large very strong and characteristic of the Nathdwara deity image which is lavishly adorned with rich costumes and ornaments every morning before the doors of the shrine are opened. Fabulous ornaments are balanced by alike beautiful floral adornment. The artist has introduced here for giving better effects and deeper symbolism to this supreme deity of love a bower in the background. A fine border, an elegantly laid chowki, a pool with many flowering lotuses, prevalence of flowers and the use of basic bright colors are other elements that render the painting highly decorative.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
