The stories of Krishna's transcendental pastimes are a popular element of folk art. He advented himself to kill all undesirable elements in the world. In perusal of this, Krishna vanquished the serpent Kaliya who had polluted the waters of the Yamuna.

The painting depicts Krishna dancing on the multiple hoods of Kaliya, holding him by the tail. Seeing the pitiful condition of their husband, the wives of the serpent, known as the nagapatnis, offer respectful obeisance to Krishna whom they recognize as the Supreme Lord. Offering flowers and garlands, they try to appease Krishna for forgiveness and mercy. The beautiful maidens are human torso upwards and their lower body is serpentine. Wearing short cholis and ornaments, they look regal. Reacting to their prayers and pleas, Krishna, banished the snake from the area, and pardoned his life in a merciful gesture.

This tale of Krishna subduing the serpent Kaliya is narrated pictorially in black and white. Using line as his only tool, the artist has displayed rhythm and balance in his composition. The overhead trees and the curvilinear clouds above compliment the ripples in the water below, reiterating harmony.

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.
