Revealing Krishna’s childhood pranks and depicting his various playful moods creates an atmosphere of amusement. Krishna climbs on the ladder to reach the hanging pots filled with butter, even as a gopi with a huge churning rod is watching him, waiting for him to get down so as to take charge of him. The panel displays good composition.
