Krishna is a composite figure and many legends and ideas have combined to constitute the framework of his concept. He is the amalgam of both, the divine and the human.

The artist here seems to have been influenced by the Pahari school, and has delineated the theme with great devotion and ability. Krishna is shown as a Rajput prince dressed in fashionable garb, practicing with artless guile the seductive graces of a courtly lover. Wearing his favourite yellow garment and a garland of lotus buds, richly bejewelled with layers of pearl strings, and gold and emerald pendants, bangles and earrings. Instead of a crown, he wears a striped turban in a princely manner replete with kalgi and brooch and finally with the peacock feather. He keeps one hand on his waist and in the other he holds a lotus flower and buds and also his flute with the music of which he mesmerizes the cow-herdesses of Brindavana. His shoulder cloth falls on his right arm and across the left shoulder. The rich black qamarband is loosely tied across his waist.

Krishna's portrait is placed in an oval niche with browns on the outside and all the brilliant, warm colours on the inside. The ash coloured body of the god is tinged with pink at places to lend volume. The various colours of his dress compliment the palette of this wonderful creation.
