The cows of Vrindavan longed to be tended by Krishnaji and would rush to him whenever he played his flute. They yielded nectar-like milk and lead a fearless life under the protection of Supreme. Cows are pious by default and the ones which were personally tended by Krishnaji were so fortunate that even celestials such as Brahma, Shiva and others considered themselves purified by having a glimpse of these cows.
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 - lotuses, Radha, Gopis and cows are also frequent subjects.
Mohan ji has been painting since the age of 10, and he and his brother learnt from his father who was also a miniature artist. He has now been painting for the last 40 years – he has learnt many genres of miniature art – Mughal and Kangra and has also received many awards in Mughal style of miniature art. He has exhibited at New York, China (7/8 times), Bahrain and many domestic exhibitions. In 2004 he has received the state awards and the National award in 2007.
