This bovine-goddess is described in Hinduism as the mother of all cows. She is a miraculous cow of plenty who provides her owner with whatever he or she desires, and is often portrayed as the mother of other cattle, as here. Hindus revere and venerate cows in their millions. Indeed, Hinduism raises the status of Mother here to the level of Goddess, and is considered sacred providing, as it does, life sustaining milk, an enduring symbol of the divine bounty of earth. A substantial part of the Krishna legend is associated with cows, cowherds and pastoral life in general in Vrindavan, images of Krishna frolicking amongst the gopis, or milkmaids, familiar to all.Krishna is seen here top right. Bead and glass painting is an age-old Indian tradition, in which part of the image is first crafted in strung glass beads, before the framed glass is overpainted to complete the image. This example is presented in its original pale Prussian blue, Art Deco period frame.
