Artist's description:

This is a painting inspired by the "Gopi Geeth" from "Bhagavatam" a devotional book of the Hindus in India. Gopi Geeth consists of 19 stanzas and is all about the love the Gopis feel for Krishna the eternal Lover. Their love is not the physical one but of the eternal kind. The Gopis stand for the human soul seeking the All Pervading God with whom it wants to unite to feel the ecstasy of oneness with God, to be liberated from the earthly desires and downfalls. This painting shows Gopis in distress as Krishna is not visible to them, they only here his divine flute. Here's the extract:
"Jayati te dhikam janmanaa vrajah
shrayata Indira shashva datra hi,
Dayita drishyataam dikshu taavaka-
stvayi dhritaasava-stvaam vichinvatey." (Sanskrit Verse)

"The gopis said: O beloved, Your birth in the land of Vraja
has made it exceedingly glorious, and thus
Lakshmi, the goddess of fortune, always resides here.
It is only for Your sake that we,Your devoted servants,
maintain our lives. We have been searching
everywhere for You, so please show Yourself to us."
