Goddess Print # 8
Here we find a beautiful painting in which real jewels have been applied to the frame and parts of the painting, as seen on the crown, armlets, etc. This is a custom that is often done in India, or with paintings that are especially valuable. This adds to the beauty as well as the value of the painting. It makes the painting even more personable, like a worshipable Deity. This is a painting of Shyam Sundar Yamuna Maharaniji, the personification of the Yamuna River, as she is viewed in the Pushti Marg tradition of Sri Vallabhacarya. Others say it is Sri Yamunaji, or Lord Krishna as the consort of Yamuna Devi as worshipped by Srinatha sampradayis.
