Seeking, Acrylic on canvas, 30″x40″.

A painting in the Madhubani/Mithila tradition of art, inspired by a Hindustani song “ban ban dhoondan jaaon” The beautiful song (bandish) set in Vrindavani raag (tune) speaks of a seeker looking for Krishna, in the deep woods. The seeker looks for love, or truth, depending on how you interpret it. Peacock feather adorning the crown, golden hoops in his ears, hand holding a flute, do you know where He hides, the seeker asks.
