The theme of the painting done in oil on canvas is not novel but much celebrated in medieval Indian devotional literature as an expression of Radha's love for Krishna. The dark Krishna and the golden fair Radha are ceaselessly brought into juxtaposition with Krishna goading shy Radha to come to him. In a milieu of royal splendour, Krishna is seated on a huge white cushion with golden cords. His pious foot rests on a similar cushion. He is dressed in pitamber (yellow garment), and a crown with a peacock feather stuck in it. He wears a long garland of roses. Radha, dressed in a beautiful rose pink saree and a brocade blouse is wearing extraordinary jewellery consisting of necklaces, head jewellery and ornamented waist belt. She stands shyly in front of Krishna, holding a fly whisk in one hand and holding an end of her saree in another. Standing in tribhanga position, she is the epitome of grace with her body curving at three spots - knees, waist and the head. There is an expression of longing on the faces of Radha and Krishna - restrained due to shyness in the former, bold and blatant in Krishna.

Awestruck by the intensity of emotion between the two lovers, the sakhis can do little but stare at them. They are dressed in ghagras and cholis of bright colours and wear beautiful ornaments.

The background shows that the scene takes place in the palace. The casket and a cup lie in a tray in the foreground. The blue of the sky beyond the window and that of the foreground frame other brilliant hues used in the garments of the sakhis, the blue body of Krishna, yellow clothes, red garland etc.

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.
