Although the "Kamalan ki Pichwai" or Lotus pichwais were not made to adorn Shrinathji'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. The repetitive motif of these pichwais 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 pichwais utilise the metaphor in one of the "ashtachhapa" poems, which compares Krishna to a bee and his cherished Gopis to lotuses.
