The Vishnu Purana has an interesting account of Krishna & Balarama's birth. It says that the Supreme Lord plucked off two hairs, one black and one white – the black impersonated as Krishna and the white as Balarama. They were inseparable all through their childhood and youth.

This narrow, rectangular frieze shows the gopis displaying their love and affection for the brothers leaving Vrindavana for Mathura. Though important to the theme, the artist does not paint the chariot carrying Krishna and Balarama, in the middle. It is part of the whole composition. The scenario is led by the cowherds, walking alongside their cows, carrying pots of milk and butter. Facing the opposite direction, towards the oncoming chariot, is a group of gopis, making an attempt to stall the chariot. Behind are also some more cowherdesses, wanting to have a better glimpse of their beloved Krishna and Balarama. The brothers are trying to pacify the beautiful agitated maidens, not successfully though.

The background to this pleasing painting is pink with stylized trees trying to block the effect of pure pink. When talking of colour, it is noteworthy that the artist has painted the horses – in black and the other in white, true to the colors of Krishna and Balarama.

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.
