It is the portraiture of Lord Krishna in his puny dimension. In his early childhood he was famous for his caprice and playfulness. He is at cross with his attending nurse. According to legend he is a notorious pilferer of butter collected in pots for the theft of which he has been caught many a time. The legendary lore of the early life of Krishna is recalled by the artist who does not make it explicit to whom he is now at cross though the quarrel is all too momentary and fleeting. The picture’s endearing charm is partly due to its legendary association and the fascinating way in which he has posed the Bala (young) Krishna, tying his hands at the back holding his miraculous lute (flute).
