Krishna is often spoken of as being different persons coalesced into one: a hero, a teacher, a cowherd, a romantic & someone who became deified with the passage of time.

The pata-chitrakar has captured the events of Krishna's life in a visually interesting manner. The focal space has Radha & Krishna, flanked by sakhis; which blossoms in a lotus with rasa depicting Krishna and a gopis on each petal. On the top and bottom of this lotus are five sections each depicting various incarnations of Vishnu. An Enthralling border encloses this; it narrates events starting from the birth of Krishna. It tells of Krishna's childhood which was a combination of mythical exploits and childhood pranks. Here, he kills the whir wind demon Trinavartta, the crane demon Bakasura, the horse demon Keshi, the bull demon. Arishta and Kaliya, the serpent and as Krishna grows, his tryst with Gopis begin. The artist however, does not forget to portray, Krishna lifting the Govardhana Mountain, thereby covering the major events of Krishna's life in Brindavana. The strength of the work lies in draughtsmanship; every figure having a steady black outline.

Tina, USA
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.
