Mahabharata – A Strange Charioteer

This painting is set within a fabulous landscape, the beautiful town of Dwarka – the kingdom of Lord Krishna. The painting captures the moment lovers flee the town. The excitement of two souls running away in full complicity with one another. But the story is deeper than a runaway chariot driven by a strange charioteer.

A woman named Subhadra, Krishna’s sister, and beside her, Krishna’s best friend Arjuna. Subhadra is promised to another and therefore she planned for Arjuna to kidnap her. They break through the doorway of the city, the guards are pushed aside, as their duty fails short of their destiny.

The artist captured the energy of the moment by depicting the dynamic movement of galloping horses through the city, which is the main focus of this scene.
