The stories of Krishna's transcendental pastimes are a popular element of folk art. He manifested himself to annihilate the undesirable elements in the world. In perusal of this, Krishna vanquished the serpent Kaliya who had polluted the waters of the Yamuna.

The painting depicts Krishna dancing with one leg crossed across his body, much like Nataraja, on the multiple hoods of Kaliya, holding him by the tail. Seeing the pitiful condition of their husband, the wives of the serpent, known as the nagapatnis, offer respectful obeisance to Krishna whom they recognize as the Supreme Lord. Offering flowers, they try to appease Krishna for forgiveness and mercy. The beautiful maidens are human torso upwards and their lower body is serpentine. Wearing short cholis and ornaments, they look regal. Reacting to their prayers and pleas, Krishna, banished the snake from the area, and pardoned his life in a typically merciful gesture.

The central figure of Krishna dominates the painting. Five serpent women are arranged symmetrically on each side. The serpent Kaliya and the waters of the river are achieved in the same color scheme, with the latter being achieved through wavy lines in black and white. In the sky can be seen floating, curly clouds. Like most paintings from the sacred town of Puri, this one too is framed within three borders.

Delivered by to all international destinations within 3 to 5 days, fully insured.
