Batik has developed as an art form rapidly in the past few decades. Previously, the colors used were vibrant but few in number. Now the artist freely experiments with new colors, shading and themes.

Here the theme is one much celebrated in medieval Indian devotional literature as an expression of Radha's love for Krishna. The two are seated in an amorous posture, with arms around each other, eyes looking into eyes, conveying unspoken desires. The contrast between the dark Krishna and the fair Radha is emphasized by the background in various earthy shades.

A languorous and a highly charged mood prevails. Krishna's lotus face is radiant with a smile as he looks into Radha's dreamy eyes full of seductive charm. The serene beauty of the pale faced Radha is only equaled by the loveliness of the moon peeping from behind the branch of a tree.

The artist Harikrishen has used all bright colors for the clothes. Except for the stone encrusted crown of Krishna, jewelry does not occupy any special place in the composition. Other than the moon which augments the romantic ambience, the background is void. Interestingly, it is shaded in numerous tones of rust which in turn highlights the other brighter colors.

More than erotic undertones, this picture symbolizes the relationship between the human soul and the Divine. We must understand that here, the sensual imagery is a foil for the notion of transcendental absorption which is actually the underlying idea of this image.
