Pranks of Krishna-Patachitra

Pranks of KrishnaDimensions : 9 x 9 Inches

This particular handmade Talapatachitra depicts the Rasalila (The Dance of Love) of Sri Krishna and his beloved Radha in the sacred garden of Vrindavan. The standard palette of colors (green, blue, yellow, red, black, white) has been used and the characteristic Patachitra style is evident in the extended noses, elongate eyes, and finely detailed clothes and jewelry. The typical iconographic details such as the blue-hued Krishna and the yellow-tanned Radha are also there in this Patachitra. Krishna, the God of Love, is dressed in yellow, the color of his beloved, while Radha wears green.

Two Gopis (cowherd maidens) carrying pitchers are also standing nearby. Krishna is seen holding a flute in his right hand. The music of the flute is the seductive charm that Krishna uses in mesmerizing his beloved. The vibrant colors and the postures of the figures aptly create a virtual aura of love and devotion associated with the legends of Radha-Krishna.
