Stories of Krishna referred to in the Bhagavata have been popular themes with painters all over India. Krishna is, for philosophers and thinkers, the ultimate truth, for lovers the most lovable and for life the most perfect model.

The horizontal panel is divided into three, with depictions of various incidents in Krishna's life. At the left, in the first panel, Krishna has climbed a tall tree, having stolen the clothes of the bathing maidens. He then prods them to come out of the river in their state of undress to beg for their clothes. Here, the deep blue water and the golden maidens make a striking contrast.

The middle panel shows him as a savior. He urged the villagers of Vrindavana to worship Mt. Govardhana instead of Indra, as the mountain provided them with a living and protected their fields and homes. The slighted Indra sent a terrible rainstorm to destroy them all. Krishna here can be seen raising the mountain on the little finger of his left hand, sheltering the villagers.

The extreme right panel has Krishna dancing on the hoods of the vanquished serpent Kaliya, who had poisoned the waters of the Yamuna. The wives of the serpent pray to Krishna to spare Kaliya's life.

By and large, the artist continues with the same colour palette in the three panels, thus maintaining a symmetry and a chromatic balance.
