This painting is a perfect combination of Mandala and Madhubani art forms, depicting Lord Krishna and Radha in their handsome lila while the other gopis dance joyfully in a circle around them. Madhubani art is symbolic of depicting historic deities and backgrounds full of flowers and petals highlighting nature scenes in a vibrant and colorful palette. Mandala in Sanskrit means, Magic Circle and represents the soul of an art, it is a therapy for making order out of disorder.
The one shown here has a large and beautiful flower patch on a unique sea-green background filled with petalled vines, twisting and turning along with multiple peacocks perched randomly. The yellow colored flower creates a striking contrast with the various other soothing colors of the painting. The big circle in the centre is captured by the infinite love bond of Radha and Krishna, where they seem to be lost in each other’s eyes; Krishna plays the soulful track from his flute and Radha holds him out of love and excitement. Both are garbed in enchanting attires and jewels with a feathered crown worn by Krishna.
The gopis painted in each petal, dance with their heart out on the soulful tunes of Krishna by spreading their striped long skirts in a fan formation and chunri flowing in ease. Zoom in to see the mesmerizing leafy vines all over the yellow flower along with a geometric colorful border on the outer edges and inner circle outlined in pink lotus petals. The unmistakable charm and vibrancy of this painting attracts the eyes of the viewer in one go.
