In the sacred ocean of milk, situated in Vaikuntha Loka (Abode of Lord Shri Vishnu), Vishnu and Lakshmi are postured on a blissful and fully bloomed pink lotus placed on the multi headed large whitish snake, Sheshnaag, who serves Lordships in the form of a bed. Sheshnaag’s multi tongues symbolizes that while having a darshan of his presiding deities, he is chanting their holy names as a way of expressing his devotion towards them. Here Shri Vishnu is in his majestic chaturbhuja rupa and Shri Lakshmi ji in the Dwibhuja (two handed form).
Shri Lakshmi Devi resides on Shri Hari’s left lap and wears a ravishing red lehenga which consists of zari work all over in a horizontal pattern. She has adorned a delightful green chola with a stunning pink chunri over her head which is looking gorgeous and the golden border of the lehenga adds an alluring effect to the dress. The Goddess wears graceful maang tika of pearl and two pearl necklaces slightly covered by the chunri. The stone work on the chola’s sleeve’s golden border and the gold bangles in the hands having a pearl work on the top symbolizes that Devi Ji wants to provide pleasure to her husband and want to see her lover happy from her shringar. She has fair and whitish complexion which is winsome. Her hairs are gently managed which is an appealing feature.
As the scriptures mention, ‘Alankar Priya Vishnu’ (Vishnu appreciates shringar) , we can see that lord wears a beautiful piece of pearl necklace along with other gold and stone ornaments on chest, gold bangles and pearl bands in all of the four hands. Holding the alluring ayudhas (Conch, chakra, gada and lotus ) in the divine hands, Shri Narayana is looking attractive and handsome. His personality’s most pleasing feature is his blue complexion which is very unique and mesmerizing just like a bloomed lotus. He wears a royal golden crown decorated with pretty bundle of peacock feathers which draws everyone’s attention towards the madhurya form of the lord. His hairs are looking fabulous which makes him look very cute.
Hence, as an overview the painting is truly a Kangra idiom of Pahari art revealing the secrets of the appearances and forms of the supreme personality of Godhead which makes a person easily understand the various lila’s of Bhagavan.
