From childhood to the battlegrounds of Kurukshetra, Krishna’s Leela (divine play) has motivated the Indian arts and aesthetics to come up with gracious recreation of the dark-skinned Lord’s aura. In the Tanjore idiom, Krishna’s baalyakala (childhood), Kaishorya (adolescence), and adulthood grace the gilded artworks, which enrich and enliven the senses of viewers with the nectar of Krishna’s beauty. This exquisite Tanjore painting puts the conjugal bliss of Krishna inside a deep-hued wooden frame with his two head queens- Rukmani and Satyabhama. Devi Rukmani or Rakhmai (mother Rukmini) is the elder one out of the two, and is a form of Sri-Lakshmi, while Satyabhama is the incarnation of Bhudevi (earth goddess). Red- the color of marital bliss, Shakti (energy), and auspiciousness dominates the backdrop of this artwork, providing a fitting space for the opulence of the divine trio. Flanked by the auspicious embodiments of eternal fortune (Lakshmi) and eternal fecundity (Bhudevi), Sri Krishna in this Tanjore painting surpasses the glory of the universal sovereign- Chakravarti.
