The artist has faithfully portrayed the dark stone sculpture of Shri Nathji with its monolithic rectangular slab depicting stylized rocks and wild inhabitants in low relief. The image of the sculpture contrasts with the surrounding pale hues, notably the pink created by a new synthetic pigment imported from Europe.
Govardhan Lalji is a priest descended from the founder of the Pushti Marg sect, Vallabha, who ministers to the elaborate devotions and daily activities of Shri Nathji.
