Krishna plays an important role in the religious, social and cultural life of India and his life stories have attracted artists of all ages. Vishnu Purana and the Bhagwata Purana are the two chronicles which provide them with numerous legends about Krishna's life.

This painting is perhaps the best example of a pictorial narrative which includes most important episodes from Krishna's life. Starting from top left, the artist begins to tell his tale – the early few sections narrate the story of Krishna's birth, moving downwards to show the love showered on baby Krishna. The artist takes delight in depicting his childhood pranks and his encounter with various demons. He does not forget to show Krishna's loyal friendship with childhood friend Sudama. The narration moves in clockwise direction, with a story attached to each depiction.

The central part is slightly crowded and the confusion enhanced by the black background. But before the description of the middle section, the one closest to the centre shows the ten incarnations of Vishnu, Krishna being one of them. As mentioned, the central part shows commotion, what with the villagers going about their routing chores, the cattle fighting for space. But the most conspicuous part is the chariot carrying Krishna and Balarama, driven by half a dozen horses. The chariot is surrounded by the cowherdesses who have not had enough of their beloved Krishna.

The entire pictorial epic is bound within three small borders.

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.
