The pattachitra (folk art made on a complex, locally produced canvas) that you see on this page is a colourful depiction of this snatch of Krishnaleela. The dusky Lord Krishna is at the centre of the composition, His peet- or amber-coloured robes flowing about Him. The people of Mathura, each painted in great detail, surround Him and prostrate at His feet in sheer gratitude and veneration. From the all-important hill to the mounds of bhoomi (earth) below, solid pastel hues characterise this composition.
