In the pitch darkness of the night, unafraid, Radha is in close embrace with
her lover. She is dressed in flowing garments and exquisite jewellery. With
her leg wrapped around Krishna, she looks into his eyes, unabashedly. Her
golden complexion complements the blue of Krishna's body. In a reciprocatory
gesture, he too wraps his leg around Radha's form. In this way, they
precariously balance themselves on the lotus emerging from the turbulent
waters. Krishna wears an elaborate crown and other attractive pieces of
jewellery. Their bodies intermingled, the faces are seen in profile. Only
colour of their costumes help distinguish one body from the other and
therefore forms an important tool in this painting.
The artist has painted a halo around their heads but it is overlooked by the
one formed by the tree bending to embrace the divine couple in its arms.
