Radha and Krishna, the much celebrated couple stand at the banks of Yamuna,
looking deep into each others eyes. The emotions that they feel in this
painting are intensely passionately human. Krishna's appearance corresponds
perfectly to iconographic descriptions - blue bodied, clad in yellow dhoti,
wearing a crown, adorned by a long elegant garland of wild flowers. But
Radha's ghagra-choli gives way to a local attire. Nevertheless, she looks
beautiful with jewellery adorning her body.
Lotus flowers and leaves dot the flowing waters. The dense tree under which
they stand send out flowering branches in order to touch the couple and be
blessed. The distant perspective shows huts and turrets on the left and
another lotus pond on the right.
