Rasleela | Pichwai Painting

In this Intricate painting of krishna rasleela, Krishna appears eight times dancing with alternate pairs of gopis in a circle. At the four cardinal points of the circle Krishna is represented by Shri Nath-ji and the central figure can perhaps be equated with his image as Sri Madanmohan-ji. At either side below the circle other gopis provide music for the dance and above in the star-filled sky celestial chariots carry gandharvas and the deities Siva and Brahma with their consorts. The foreground, consist of jamna river. Around the central scene are small panels showing the adornment of the Nathadwara image during the seasonal festivals.

Pichwai begin in the seventeenth centaury, when Vallabhaichari sect created pictorial illustration of festivals and occasions as scenery for Krishna temple in Nathdwara, Udaipur in Rajasthan. Concerning this time, Shreenath ji devotes migrated to Deccan and commenced the Pichwai art form. Its indigo scenery and comprehensive use of real gold and silver are typical of Deccan Pichwais of the late eighteenth century.

Pichwai’s are characterizing by massive eyes, sharp nose and colourful costumes with all fine details, be it sheer dupattas of Gopis (milkmaids) and Radha or jewel and gems adorned in crown and other jewelry. Trees, adorned animal and beautiful birds are another conspicuous features. Figure of Shreenath ji (Krishna) is shown adorned in spirited festive costumes.
