The pata-chitrakar Rabi Behera has probably outdone himself with this painting. With the help of geometric shapes, it is compartmentalized episode-wise. Circular shapes form the outer border, pictorially narrating events prior to Krishna's birth, the dramatic turn of events at his birth and his tryst with various demons during different phases of his life.

The central rectangular area comprises of an exquisite arch under which Radha and Krishna stand, overlooking a lotus pond with swans and lotus flowers. The beasts and the gopis look equally bemused and mesmerized with the love play of the two. The artist perceives Krishna in a black body tone. On the right is a smaller rectangular block, which depicts the episode where Krishna swipes the clothes of the gopis who had gone to the river to bathe. He forces them to come out naked to fetch back their clothes. Krishna used to play many such pranks on the unassuming gopis.

On the left is Krishna dancing on the hood of Kaliya, the python who was polluting the waters of river Yamuna. Krishna subjugates him in the fight that ensued between the two. The nagapatnis can be seen here requesting Krishna to spare Kaliya's life.

Tina, USA
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.
