Yashoda-Krishna

My first attempt at Tanjore Painting.

Mother Yashoda embracing Lord Krishna. Mythology has it that, as a child, Lord Krishna had great love for her foster mother Yashoda. This painting symbolises the traditional richness prevelant in the Dwapara Yuga.

    A very well done piece. I’m not that familiar with Tanjore, but I love the use of color and the metal.
    take care

    Vidhya, this is just so beautiful and very nicely done… particularly the faces.. esp. of Yashoda.. so calm and serene – very apt.
