Although the‘Kamalan ki Pichvai’ or Lotus pichvais were not made to adorn Shreenathji's shrine, they did convey an aesthetic and emotional appeal of summer shringaar. Right in the centre of the pond stands the 'swaroop' of 'Gokulchandramaji', wearing light clothing and playing the flute under a 'phulmandali' or pavilion of flowers. The repetitive motif of these pichvais symbolizes lotus ponds and the banks of the River Yamuna, where the young Krishna spent much of his time with his beloved Gopis. The artists of these pichvais utilise the metaphor in one of the ‘ashtachhapa’ poems, which compares Krishna to a bee and his cherished Gopis to lotuses. Natural stone pigment on cloth. School of Nathdwara, Rajasthan.
