Radha Krishna


The B/W pattachitra ( on hand canvas 32 x 24 cms)
is a genuine hand made painting that depicts the
Radha Krishna dalliance. The white paint is made out
of sea shells. Radha is passionately attracted
and devoted to Krishna. The love affair centres
around the cowherd village of Vrindavan. Radha
represents the human devotee who gives up everything
in order to cling to Lord Krishna. This is
interpreted as a symbolic love between humanity and
God, a sort of quest for union with the divine. It
represents the bond of love between two souls,
husband and wife, lovers, etc. Of all the deities
worshipped in India, the most popular is Lord
Krishna. He is probably the only Hindu god who is
worshipped at every stage of his life – as a
child, as a youth, as a king, as an avatar,
etc… The word Krishna refers to “dark”,
indicating the supreme consciousness. He is the 8th
avatar or incarnation of Vishnu who was born in a
prison. He is safely carried out by his father
Basudeva and allowed to grow in the countryside
among the cowherds. He is depicted as ever smiling,
lotus eyed god with garland of flowers around his
neck. He appears blue in colour, dons a yellow robe
and wears a peacock feather in his hair. After
slaying his wicked uncle, Krishna ruled from the
city of Dwarka and later joined the Mahabharata war
by joining the Pandavas. He is a favorite subject
of artists who show him as killing demons, stealing
butter or dallying with the gopis or winning the
heart of beautiful Radha.
