This painting was made in India in the 19th century for a temple devoted to Krishna.
Pichwai painting is a form of art that has its roots in Rajasthan, more precisely in Nathdwara.
Pichwai means 'on the back' so these paintings can effectively be used as decorative curtains/backgrounds in Shrinath ji temples and Krishna temples in Rajasthan.
These wall cloths can be considered to be very sacred.
They depict many different events from the life of Krishna.
Krishna (कृष्ण, literally "black, dark, dark blue"; Sanskrit for 'all-attractive') is one of the most worshipped gods in Hinduism.
As such, Krishna is the main character in the Mahabharata, Srimad Bhagavatam and the Bhagavad Gita - from Wikipedia.
This concerns a very beautiful quality painting with delicate details, made with great craftsmanship and painted meticulously. Please see the photos.
The swing, the night with the moon, the lake and the water in the jugs are all components of the story.
