Numerous tales have been told down the ages, regarding Krishna, a popular incarnation of Vishnu. He, born of this earth, reared in the soil of Braj, was adorable as a baby, mischievous as a boy, centre of all eyes as a youth, ethereal and divine.

Krishna's encounters with demons are pictorially narrated with delight. Especially mentionable is his tryst with Kaliya, the serpent, who polluted the waters of river Yamuna. After a fierce dual Krishna tamed him, dancing on his multiple heads, with his tail in one hand. As he was about to slay Kaliya, the latters numerous wives arose out of the river, pleading for his life.

In the centre of the composition is Krishna gleefully dancing on the hood of Kaliya. Around him are the naga-patnis, folding hands or holding offerings to Krishna, begging for Kaliya's release. On either side of the river are Krishna's parents and friends, astounded, yet fearing for his safety.

The artist has painted the narrative, without much aid of colour. He uses pale yellow to break away from monochromatic monotony. The strength of his draughtsmanship contributes largely to the beauty of this pata-chitra.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
