Pichwais are devotional paintings that celebrate different tales from the life of Lord Krishna. In Sanskrit "Pichh" means back and "wais" means hanging, so Pichwais primarily are paintings which hang behind the main deity of Krishna.
Pichwai art has a rich history associated with it. It originated almost 5 centuries ago in the temple town of Nathdwara near Udaipur in Rajasthan.
This Pichwai painting depicts young Krishna in his Shrinathji form which is the most common in terms of design and also most sought after among those interested to an authentic Pichwai. In this painting, Shrinathji has his one arm raised, depicting him holding up the Govardhan Mountain.
