Devotional literature and poetry stress the theme of worldly love as a metaphor for the soul's search for divinity. Radha's passion for Krishna symbolizes the soul's intense longing for the love of God.

Radha and Krishna are shown basking in each other's glory, a certain ineffable tenderness characterizing their gestures and movements. Physically, their bodies are intermingled; spiritually, their souls are united. The blue-bodied Krishna is lost in the arms of fair Radha. But they are not alone, the cow they are resting against looks upon them lovingly; the sakhi waves a fan over them, though the couple is unaware. The tree in the background is bending almost double to provide shade and cover to the loving two. The lotus pond in the foreground houses graceful swans – pairs of birds and animals are used as metaphors for loving couples.

The artist adapts the traditional folk style in depicting features and body types. The jewellery worn by Radha, Krishna and the sakhi belongs to a particular geographical region. The colors are chosen with care and applied thinly.

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.
