Let your walls be a reflection of your artistic tastes with this stunning miniature painting of Krishna Vishvarupa displayed in a visible corner of your living room.
The Bhagavad Gita, a canonical Hindu text, presents a spectrum of yogic doctrines and practices within a framework of personal devotion (bhakti) to Krishna. In its eleventh chapter, Krishna manifests in his cosmic form (Vishvarupa) and is praised as Lord of Yoga (Yogeshvara).
This modern take of the work of an eighteenth-century artist evokes the limitless and proliferating universe by extending Krishna’s sixty multicolored heads and forty-four pinwheeling arms to the very borders of the painting. Within the Golden dhoti that wraps around his waist, a miniaturized mountain landscape conveys Krishna’s vastness and supremacy. Four of Krishna’s lavender blue vertically stacked heads relate to the God’s successive manifestations to his devotee Arjuna, who is shown in a gesture of worship in the lower right of the art.
With its delicate line, luscious sherbet colors, and especially Krishna’s gentle expressions, the painting conveys the god’s compassion toward his devotees.
Crafted entirely by hand, the modern artist has created an inspirational painting that revolves round the subtle yet powerful depiction of the Hindu God. Every brush stroke and detail of the painting signifies the hard work and passion that goes into creating such mesmerizing fusion of realism and miniature style of paintings.
