Bani Thani Paintings
This beautiful miniature painting depicts the Raja Sawant Singh of Kishangarh in Rajasthan as the eternal lover Krishna. It belongs to the Kishangarh School of Indian miniature paintings.
Bani Thani was an enchanting mistress of Raja Sawant Singh of Kishangarh in Rajasthan. She was a quintessential Indian beauty with her elongated face with a high forehead, arched eyebrows, half-open lotus eyes, sharp-pointed nose, thin curved sensuous lips, and a pointed chin over a long narrow neck. The curl of the hair around the ear added to her innate grace. She was the inspiration for the image of Radha of Kishangarh School of painting and Raja Sawant Singh was painted as Krishna. Besides being blessed with natural beauty she was also an accomplished poetess and singer. In later years, Bani Thani along with Sawant Singh retired to the life of reclusion, singing devotional bhajans in praise of Krishna till they lost to eternity. Adding to the richness of the theme of this painting is the color of gold that has been derived from pure 24k gold dust.
