"The soft black curve of his body
was wrapped in off white silk
Like a dark lotus
encircled in veils of yellow pollen."
In the painting no lotuses float on the river. There is the empty bower and a Kamadeva in a beautiful tree. Opposite, inside the second bower, Radha and Krisna stand holding each other. The sakhi watches. The yellow garment of Krisna is prominently featured. The painting remains at a purely descriptive level, as the artist displays a sensitivity to both color and simile.
