Reverse Glass Painting : Krishna

Rs. 11,000
Reverse Glass Painting : Krishna: Kathiyawaar : c. 1930

This reverse glass painting is an illustration of Lord Krishna as a young adult. Krishna is known as the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu and is the God of compassion, protection, tenderness, and love. Here, he is playing his flute and is standing in a room against the open window. In this room, he is surrounded by peacocks and a cow. The cow alludes to Krishna’s time spent as a cow herder. Krishna was a notorious child and this mischievous nature is captured beautifully by the artist with a slight smirk on his face. Whenever Krishna would play the flute, all the gopis or women in the village would gather to dance to his music. The peacocks behind him represent the diversity of humankind and Krishna’s love for all human beings. Krishna is synonymous with peacocks and is often depicted around them or wearing their feathers.

Dimensions : 16"x10"
