Mahabharata – My Dwarka

Cities are a reflection of the ones who built them. The prosperous city of Dwarka, which was capital of Lord Krishna’s kingdom, was a gateway to heaven. Located in modern day Gujarat, the city of Dwarka is often compared to the city of Atlantis, maybe because they both suffered the same fate of being plunged into the depths of the sea.

This painting represents a moment in the daily life of Dwarka. It was described as a vast area in which architecture, palaces and houses are fully merged in the natural landscape of the west coast of India. You can see Krishna and Balarama in a relaxed conversation, framed by marble and bronze. The sky is painted with lightful strokes creating a wide space for legendary figures and flying creatures that break through a banal perception.
