At the right, the god Krishna places a water pot on the head of Radha, his beloved. Radha is probably also depicted among the other milkmaids at an earlier moment, crouching, her long dark hair streaming down her back. In the lower left corner, a tiny figure of the god of love and desire, Kama, fires an arrow at Radha and Krishna. Love is an avenue of salvation, because Krishna’s and Radha’s minds are emptied of everything but love.
