Here we see Radha and Krishna in a lotus. The lotus belongs to the earth, water and light. It enacts the transmutation from earth to air, from mud to perfume, from darkness to lustrous colour. The foreground has a lotus pond with full-bloomed flowers, buds and leaves emerging out of swirling water. On its banks sit the duo covered in lotus petals from head to toe. Only their faces and hands are visible which also holds stalks of the flowers. Krishna is painted blue and Radha in a golden complexion, offering flowers to each other.
Behind the couple are a variety of trees, some flowering and others with dense leaves. Beyond the trees there is a vast expanse of barren land with a thin stripe for the skyline.
