The painting depicts Yashoda, a central figure in Hindu mythology known for being the foster mother of Lord Krishna. The artwork showcases her in a graceful pose, adorned with intricate jewelry and clothing, highlighting the detailed and delicate line work characteristic of Pattachitra.

    Description of the Painting:


    • The central figure is Yashoda, depicted in a dynamic pose that exudes elegance and movement. Her pose, with one arm raised above her head and the other bent at her waist, suggests a moment of activity or dance, capturing her nurturing and lively spirit.

    • Jewelry: She is adorned with various pieces of jewelry, including earrings, bangles, anklets, and necklaces, each meticulously drawn.
