This exquisite painting depicts Krishna with Gopis during the Autumn Moon Festival (Sharad Purnima). Great effort and dedication have been invested in creating this spectacular artwork, which you will find awe-inspiring. Pichavai (or Pichwai) paintings are large cloth paintings traditional hung behind the deity in Hindu shrines. The Sharad Purnima is a harvest festival celebrated on the full moon day in autumn, marking the end of monsoon. The festival is still celebrated in India today. Krishna performed the Rasa Lila (or divine play) with his ideal devotees, the Gopis (milkmaids). Krishna is the avatar of the great Hindu god Vishnu. With the luster of a full moon, Krishna's enchanting flute music attracts the Gopis to leave their homes and families in the middle of the night. The Gopis found him irresistibly attractive and in the ecstasy of divine love spent the entire night dancing with him. In the painting, Krishna is dark blue skinned, standing cross-legged, as the melody of his flute summonses the playful crowds of infatuated Gopis dressed in brightly coloured saris. Krishna is dressed in a gold-embroidered orange scarf and elaborately layered skirt. He is lavishly adorned with garlands, beaded necklaces, and gold-gem jewels, wearing a crown with peacock feathers. The scene is in a forest glade beside the Yamuna River under the silver full moon and sparkly stars. The Rasa Lila is considered to be one of the most esoteric of Krishna's pastimes. Rasa Lila images are joyful, playful and demonstrate ideal devotion.
