Krishna lila stories referred to in the Bhagawat have been popular themes with painters all over India. Oriya art, especially chitras, are replete with the rasa pictures depicting Krishna with the gopis.

The blue bodied Krishna and the golden fair Radha are ceaselessly brought into juxtaposition, as here. The couple stand under a tree, over the boulders in the Yamuna. They are surrounded by gopis who look overjoyed to be in their company. The artist takes liberties in painting the bodies of the gopis in various colours. They wear fancy headdresses and other ornaments. Their saris have floral designs and a 'kanchuta' (blouse) in different colours covers the ample breasts. In representation, Radha looks similar to the other gopis. Krishna wears a small crown with a kalga. He is dressed in a dhoti and an uttariya, a shoulder cloth.

The trees in the background are painted with a thin brush, different from the bold strokes of colour that dominate the subject. The artists experimentation with colour and design is in keeping with the unique folk tradition.

Testimonials

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 just wanted to say that this is I think my 3rd (big) order from you, and the last two times I received immaculate service, the books arrived well and it has been a very pleasant experience. Just wanted to say thanks for your efficient service.

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.
