Krishna and Gopis

Krishna Painting

This Madhubani painting, executed on handmade paper, offers a scene from Krishna Lila and portrays Krishna with His Gopis engaged in the dance of Love. In Madhubani, the mythical figure of Krishna is often invoked in the hope of nuptial blessings. The iconic figure of Krishna is dark tanned, and he is draped in yellow. He is playing on his charming flute enchanting not only the maidens but also the birds and beasts. The Gopis (milk maidens) are simply enamored by the power of divine love. Earthen hues of orange, yellow, red and green aptly contribute to the complete atmosphere of life, love and ardor. Abstract figures have been delineated in profile. Floral patterns are used as fill. The traditional double borders with linear designs have embellished the painting.
