This painting is a symbolic depiction of the battle scene of the Mahabharata. Lord Krishna here has been symbolically depicted with a single peacock feather, riding the chariot. Here he is Parthasarthy from the epic the Mahabaratha). In the war between the good and the evil, Krishna steers the chariots on behalf of the Pandavas. This painting brilliantly captures the presence of Krishna through the only presence of peacock feather – a symbol of Lord Krishna. While the chariot horses move ahead, Krishna holds the reigns. It is through this illusion that the artist wants to depict the universal presence of Lord Krishna. The profound divine presence is brought alive with the vibrant colours of the peacock feather, placed against a muted, surreal background. with four white horses purely done as random brush strokes. The painting depicts very cleverly the fact that in a battle between the right and the wrong, he leads those who believe in the path of truth.
