He is the amalgam of both, the divine and the human. He is glorified by both, art and literature. He defines romance with gopis, and wisdom while sermonising Arjuna. He is Krishna.

This painting, monochromatic in tone, defies that colour is an essential element of a painting. Under the shade of a leafy tree sits Krishna, in the company of beautiful gopis. Their placement divides the painting into two distinct parts. On the left, we see women looking like celestial singers playing musical instruments. Different levels of the boulders decide the seating arrangement of each. In every figure, the linear rhythms of the drapery, ornaments and hair dos mould themselves to the underlying soft body with its sinuous and graceful curves. The right side of the painting, however, has cowherds with their cows requiring lesser detail and moulding. If the left side of the painting present an ethereal milieu, the right side brings the environment to earth.

An unmistakable rhythm and a sense of movement are communicated through the swans in the rippling water and the peacocks on either ends. The painter uses them as a supporting motif to create the mood.

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.
