Every color has its own significance, as white illustrates Laughter (Hasya), Red stands furious, astonished in yellow. Blue is used to depict Lord Bishnu and Green for Lord Rama. The hair of the mouse and Buffalo was used to make brushes and tied to the end of a bamboo stick. The floral border makes the art astonishingly beautiful.
Radha Krishna has two bodies but one entity that’s why his name is uttered in a single breath. Whenever Lord Krishna played his flute, Radha couldn’t resist meeting Krishna. They shared eternal love with each other, power of sacrifice, and strength with each other. They are celestial beings. The love and devotion for each other are something that can never be found. They teach us that love does not have any early definition and explanation, it’s a supreme union between the human and divine.
The picture above depicts the mystique of love between Radha Krishna surrounded by many Gopikas. Keeping a Radha Krishna painting in your home or office imbues a spirit of devotion, love, sacrifice, and strength. Another take on a splash of hues used in the painting makes it look more bewitching on the wall.
