Shri Krishna with Gopis - Folk Art Madhubani Painting
In this beautiful Madhubani painting, Lord Krishna is playing his flute whereas two gopis seem to be mesmerized by His immortal tune. The Lord Krishna is sitting on a tree, whereas the gopis are looking at Him. Madhubani painting, also known as Mithila Art, as this genre of painting is centred around Mithila region in Bihar, is marked by line drawings filled in by bright colours and contrasts or patterns. Though traditionally done by the women folk of the region, nowadays men are also involved in the process. These are basically tribal art which are marked by the application of strong earthly colours.
