was a charmer and a perfect desired husband for all the gopis of Vrindavan.
Rabi Behera in his Pattachitra art has depicted Lord Krishna in his most
popular representation of playing a flute arousing melodious and magical tunes
of love while being surrounded by the harmonious gopis. A pattachitra form is a
famous folk art form from Orissa done on a gauze-like cotton cloth canvas in a
disciplined manner depicting the great mythological themes using natural colors
and motifs of flowers. Also a floral border is a must have when we talk about
the key features of a pattachitra painting.
under a densely flowered tree, Lord Krishna amuses the three gopis seated on
his either side with the sounds from his flute. The black background is
suggestive of a night time with the stars twinkling all around in the sky and
all the damsels enjoying the vibrating yet peaceful sounds of the flute, while
adoring Lord Krishna’s sparking charm simultaneously. Krishna is adorned in a
rich dhoti patterned in varied designs along with a thin designer stole hung
across his shoulders. All the three gopis are garbed in luxuriant silk saris
decorated in tiny and stylized flower motifs that complement with the overall
theme of the painting.
jewels that the gopis and Lord Krishna are embellished with, are a way of
enhancing their beauteous personalities. The artist has amazingly painted their
hairs by filling the space with neat and tidy criss-cross lines and stylized
crown glorifying their heads. All the figurines are seated in their most comfortable
postures and are depicted with a happy face and pattachitra iconic, elongated
eyes. This black and white Lord Krishna patta painting completed with a
multiple floral border will ornate your house walls beautifully.
