The Bhagvata Purana and the Gita Govinda propound that the self unites with the supreme only in love. Krishna stands for the supreme being and the gopis for the self, their love of him being the supreme act.

The rectangular painting is vertically divided into three sections. The middle section, narrower than the other two, has Radha & Krishna standing on a lotus pedestal. Lost in each other's love, they are oblivious to the sakhis standing with a fan and flywhisk, waving them with respect. The artist paints the lotus pond in the foreground in black, perhaps, for chromatic effect.

The two side sections have the rasa-mandala imagery. What sets the two apart are the middle circular spaces. The left one shows the inseparable brothers, Krishna and Balarama, their contrasting bodies, in a gesture of unity. The middle of the right rasa-mandala depicts Krishna lifting mount Govardhana on his little finger. The petal look-alike of the mandala shows each gopi with Krishna. The rasa dance is a completely spiritual performance. Krishna, the supreme mystic expanded himself in many forms & stood beside each gopi.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
