This miniature is very subtly compartmentalized, and at the same time,
inter-related. The upper portion depicts Krishna sitting languorously,
playing his flute, as the cows gather around him gazing adoringly at
Krishna, the cowherd. His body sports rich ornaments; the crown encrusted
with gems, having peacock feathers at the pinnacle. The arrangement of trees
and the thick foliage in the miniature is quite natural and appreciable.
Some oddly placed huts comprise the upper right area.
The lower compartment sees Radha come to fill water with her friends. The
friends have filled their pitchers with water and are urging Radha to come
with them. But Radha fills and then empties her pitcher as her mind is with
her lover Krishna. The sound of his flute does not let her finish her chores
and makes her come running to him.
