This painting illustrates the following verse from the Gita Govinda.
"Paint, O Krishna, with fingers cooler than sandalwood, leaves and flowers
with musk on this breast, which resembles a vase of consecrated water,
crowned with fresh leaves, and fixed near a vernal bower, to propitiate the
God of Love".
Gita Govinda Canto XII
