Kandarpa Haathi, BLACK TOTE BAG
Kandarpa Haathi by our Pattachitra artist Apindra Swain.
The story goes that it was Radha's idea to arrange the sakhis (friends) in the form of an elephant which her sakhi-loving Beau Sri Krishna would be able to happily ride upon! 10 sakhis (friends) have been beautifully arranged in precision to form a big elephant figure "Kandarpa Haathi" on top of which Sri Krishna is perched. In a similar way, Radha also planned for "Kandarpa Boat" and "Kandarpa Rath" or chariot.
