An absolutely inexpressible work done by painting the transcendental pastime of Lord Krishna. This is the famous folk art of Odisha known as Pattachitra, in which a picture is painted on a piece of cloth with water color. This form of art has been widely recognized and practiced in this Indian state since the twelfth century because it is closely related to the artforms of the holy Jagannath Puri temple. The result is the magnificent exhibition of the rich culture and heritage of Odisha.

Here, Lord Krishna, the reservoir of all pleasure and love is shown subduing the black serpent Kaliya who lived in the river Yamuna in the land of Vraja and due to which the whole river had turned poisonous. Krishna, the all-powerful and the most intelligent, who eliminates all the undesirable elements from the world, jumped on his hoods, and the serpent gradually became fatigued and lost all his energy. This painting picturizes the scene of the Lord after He subdued Kaliya, and started blowing His flute and gracefully danced on his hoods. When Kaliya realized that Lord Krishna is the master of everything and everyone, he surrendered unto Him.


By this time, the wives of the serpent, known as Nagapatnis or mermaids appear in front of Krishna and offer their respectful obeisance to Him and ask Him for His divine shelter knowing that Krishna alone is the shelter of all the surrendered souls. They also felt ecstatic that Krishna showered His causeless mercy upon their husband Kaliya by placing His lotus feet on his hoods.
