Jayesh Sharma paints lord Shreenath ji in this Pichwai Painting. Shreenath ji is the manifestation of lord Krishna as a seven-year old child who lifted the mighty Govardhan Hill on his fingertip, to protect the settlers of Vrindavan from the wrath of Indra. The intricate lines and rich details of the painting showcase the deity in beautiful clothes and jewellery as he lifts up the Govardhana Hill on his left hand, while his right hand holds lotus blooms symbolising spritual attainment. Meanwhile, his firm posture implies the balance of yoga and bhoga.
The art of Pichwai originated over 400 years ago, illustrating tales of Shrinathji, an incarnation of Krishna, the deity manifest as a seven-year-old child. Prominent in th Nathadwara region of Rajasthan especially in the Vaishnavite sect, the paintings are hand-painted on cloth or paper and depict different scenes and stills.
