painting titled "Gopis Offering Lotus to Lord Krishna" depicts a
captivating moment from
avalokaya saphalaya nayane madhave|
your eyes fortunate by passionately staring at Sri Krishna as he reclines on a
cool bed of moist lotus petals."
verses from Jayadev's Gita Govinda describe Lord Krishna's splendour while he
sleeps on lotus petals. Lotus, a major flower in Hindu religion, is represented
in a variety of ways. It represents good fortune. The image of Gopikas offering
lotuses to Lord Krishna in this Rajputana style painting is a pious picture of
the devine plays that would occur between Krishna and the Gopis.
Lord Krishna is pictured standing on the Kalia Naag, whose curse was lifted by
Krishna. The dark waters of the Yamuna River provide an appropriate backdrop
for the bright green portrayal of the forest and Lord Krishna's Nilotpal (blue
lotus) complexion. This painting captures the essence of the deep bond between
the Gopis and Lord Krishna, illustrating their devotion and the divine
connection they share.
