We all have heard stories about how Lord Krishna’s flute mesmerized people with its music. An artwork depicting him playing the flute can help add joyful energy and positivity into the room.

Krishna is always shown playing flute, which signifies that a human’s heart is a reed and it goes through suffering to become a flute. Since each reed can’t be a flute, which means that to reach the god of love, it is essential to show care and forgiveness, so that God accepts the heart as an instrument to shower music and love.

The peacock’s feather is the sign of ‘beauty’ and ‘knowledge’. Beauty because it is beautiful and knowledge because it looks like an eye that aims at acquiring knowledge. Consequently, having beautiful paintings of Krishna playing flute with a peacock feather on the head with Gopis and Radha nearby signifies divine energy.
