The beautiful, lyrical poems of Jayadeva's Gita Govinda have inspired a series of paintings. The romantic love between Radha and Krishna was depicted with sensuous elegance and spiritual symbolism.

The cowherdesses of Vrindavan were entranced by the haunting sound of Krishna's flute. They would leave their homes to be with him. But his favourite was Radha. The horizontal panel is divided into sections with Krishna in each of them with a gopi. The central niche has Krishna and Radha with their standing bodies entwined around each other. The blue body of Krishna and the golden one of Radha are a sharp contrast. Their bodies are frontal, but their faces are in profile as they look towards each other. Two maids in waiting stand facing the opposite direction with a hand fan and a flywhisk each. In the other smaller niches, Krishna can be seen with gopis in different poses. Their figures are elegant, in divibhanga or tribhanga posture. The faces of all the figures are in firm profile.

The colour palette is not very bright but stands out, against the beige background.

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.
