Halos behind the heads of Radha and Krishna suggest their eminence as divine lovers.

Description

In the night, Radha is being led to Krishna waiting at the place of tryst by a female companion (sakhi). The sakhi takes off Radha’s veil so that her moonlit face could light up their way. Krishna is shown waiting for the arrival of Radha in a grove. Radha’s house has been decorated with ornamented inlay designs of floral patterns.
