Krishna, in blue, and Balarama are portrayed in identical poses and wearing peacock-feather headdresses. The paunchy bearded figure at right is their mentor, Sandipani. Two other, older students appear at left. They are seated, approximately equidistantly spaced, in an architectural structure that organizes the space.

In this contemporary miniature, Lord Krishna is shown embracing his lover Radha. A number of adoring attendants watch the scene gleefully. Some sit, others stand, some hold garlands, whereas others look on in contemplation. A pool and fountain are depicted in the foreground, and a white colored palace forms the backdrop of the scene. The setting seems to be an open-air garden or forest-like environment.

The artist has captured the story of the deer hunt with the fewest possible elements, in a way that is instantly recognizable and yet takes liberties with the classical tale. The forest is represented by two trees and a few sprays of foliage; the deer is a mundane gray, not magical gold; and Sita waits anxiously in a white marble pavilion, rather than a thatched hut. The vibrantly colored backgrounds divide the composition into zones that create mood and organize the narrative.
Artist Unknown, India, Central India, Malwa School
