VENNAI THAAZHI KRISHNAR
Here is my Navaneetha Krishna
an ever popular theme in Tanjore painting.
Watch little Krishna sitting in a cushioned pedestal
flanked by Gopis who are pampering him...
In this form,you will see little Krishna
holding a golden pot filled with butter...
In this painting ,you will see Little Krishna
holding a blob of butter ,his favorite delicacy...
While one lady who stands besides him offers
him a tiny blob of butter,
and entertaining him with a parrot,
another one is offering a butter ball
as well as a lotus, a flower
which holds a special place in his worship...
This traditional tanjore painting,
Krishna seated in a bejeweled ,cushioned throne,
bedecked in precious jewels and a lotus garland-
again ,a signature of Tanjore paintings...
the little children,calf,and the fruit tray are
all favorites of little Krishna or attributes
associated with his leelas...
and the celestial beings are showering
the Lord with flowers from Heaven...
Usually,this picture has an important place
in the puja rooms or the place of worship
in many a South Indian,Hindu household
as it signifies prosperity and well being.....
