The canvas has been dramatically divided into segments to depict various
incidents. The outer border narrates the tale starting from Krishna's birth.
The artist Rabi Behera has relegated Krishna's childhood and the childish pranks to the
background and talks of his tryst with various demons in these individual
sections. The centre is occupied by a rectangle wherein Krishna stands
surrounded by gopis under a semi-circular arch. This has four square
sections around it. It all adds up to the way in which the artist has
experimented with numerous shapes, juxtaposing them in a manner to avoid
clashing. The squares show Krishna and Radha indulging in sensual
activities, love evident in their mannerism. The centre also has the
flamboyant Krishna seducing the gopis.
