Krishna and Radha : God and Devotee

Krishna sitting beneath a tree while his beloved, Radha, runs to join him, seeking shelter from an impending storm. The storm is emblematic of passion—dark and dangerous, yet bringing new life. The union of the lovers is echoed in the intertwining of vines with flowering creepers. 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.
