Standing here with Radha, Krishna look very much the man of the world,
mature, self-assured, cast in a given mould, but possessing no intimation of
divinity. He has his hand on Radha's shoulder and she holds it there with
her own. Parrot, a symbol of love rests upon the united hands of the two.
With apparently Malyali facial features and body structure, the dress and
ornaments also reflect that tradition. Like mentioned above, each part of
India celebrated the loving couple adding their own elements. Krishna's head
ornament is a derivative of the crown; the peacock feather unmistakably
there. Exquisitely crafted ornaments adorn their bodies.
The left side of the canvas is devoted to heavy drapery, while the right
opens to the outdoor. A fascinating play of reds, greens and yellows
dominate the canvas.
