There are various lores of Krishna's irrepressible and buoyant childhood his boundless energy and spontaneity. They not only deify childhood but glorify the mother son relationship. Krishna and Yashodha are encapsulated in a world of boundless love and joy.

The emotion between the two remains the same, the depiction may have local flavour. Baby Krishna is cherubic, restless as he is held by his mother who is trying to calm him. She has adorned her son in necklaces, bracelets, anklets; a delicate belt hangs at his waist; a garland of wild flowers also hangs down his neck. Instead of the flute, the baby holds a blow horn, which is a more popular wind instrument down south. Yashoda wears stone studded gold ornaments but her saree is dull in colour, perhaps for a sober effect. On an oval face rest deep inset eyes, a rounded chin and a small mouth. Nose ornaments decorate the finely shaped nose. Maternal love and tranquility is evident on her face. By her hand gesture, she is trying to focus baby Krishna's attention on some object not shown in the canvas.

The background captures different hues of the setting sun – the remain of the golden glow, the grey of the approaching dark. In contrast, the foreground is dark, with the cattle ready for home.

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.
