Krishna and Radha : The Eternal Love

The Hindu god Krishna with his beloved, Radha. Krishna’s love affair with Radha is used as an analogy for the relationship between God and devotee: deeply satisfying but not without its challenges. Here, Radha turns to Krishna for comfort in much the same way a devotee would turn to God.

Pattachitra painters, who make paintings over a piece of cloth known as Patta or a dried palm leaf, specialize in this unique art-form since generations. Raghurajpur a heritage crafts village in Puri district, Odisha is famous for this centuries old craft-works which at least date back to 5 BC. A mixture of chalk and gum is used in unique proportion to create this beautiful piece.

Note: In all its grandeur this can be custom made i.e. hand painted over a specific time frame in a specific size.
