This painting is portrayed in unique color combinations, different from the usual bright shades like red, orange, yellow etc; it amalgamates dull and light shades together to form this beautiful miniature of Krishna and other birds and animals enjoying his soulful track. Madhubani art, also popular as Mithila painting is the most famous art form of India, practiced majorly in Nepal and Bihar as a folk tradition of village women, passed on to their daughters through multiple generations.
Here, the background is filled in with the gigantic tree of life with its branches curling up in each and every direction, bearing uncountable stencil leaves of greyish tone and small sweet cherries as can be identified by their rich red color. Lord Krishna painted in his most artistic gestures and realistic eyes; adorned in a cringed dhoti and a flowy robe along with vibrant jewels and a peacock crown, plays his flute that arouses heavenly and soothing tones, while Kamadhenu (his sacred cow), peacocks and other birds couldn’t resist themselves to stop and listen to this harmonious tone.
The light orange colored patterns hidden behind the expansive tree are flowers blooming in ecstasy. When you look carefully you will realize that this painting aptly exemplifies Madhubani art by depicting scenes of nature and mythology; painted in extreme patience in an exclusive style of filling the large areas by tiny symmetrical motifs.
