Linear and monochromatic, this painting shows a rasamandala. Radha and
Krishna can be seen dancing in a grove along with other gopis. This scene
forms the nucleus of the mandala with more gopis in the outer circle. Swami
Prabhupada maintains that this rasa dance is a completely spiritual
performance. There is rhythm and poetic flow in the movements of Radha and
Krishna. The dancing pose of other gopis also convey grace. The crowns and
other ornaments may not be noticeable as individual object but they add to
the overall beauty of the painting.
The circular rasamandala on a square canvas, gives the artist four corners
to be used in a manner that heightens the beauty of the entire painting. If
that wasn't enough, he gives the theme a narrow border, followed by a
broader one - one better than the other.
