Krishna Art – “Windows to the Spiritual World”
During the earlier years of the Krishna Consciousness movement in the west, many devotees of Krishna were artists. Some of them used their talents to make extraordinary paintings of Krishna and his pastimes, as well as paintings depicting other stories from the Srimad Bhagavatam.
There is a quote by Srila Prabhupada about these Krishna Art paintings. He referred to them as “Windows to the Spiritual World.” Much of this art is featured as illustrations in his books.
‘Krishna Art,’ while it can refer to the above paintings, or to any artwork depicting Krishna, is also a book. It’s a beautiful compilation by the Bhaktivedanta Book Trust of high-quality images of many the paintings mentioned above. It is an oversized ‘coffee-table’ book, with the exquisite art displayed as large page-sized or double-foldout-page-sized images. The pictures are accompanied by descriptions, as shown below

Subject: HIGHLY IMPRESSIVE PRODUCT QUALITY!
Testimonial Text: I ordered the Print Size posters of Mother Yashoda feeding Baby Krishna in 3 different sizes and also baby Krishna eating butter in 2 different sizes. I was expecting just some normal photograph poster print as the price that i paid was hardly anything … but the product that i received was extremely impressive and very High Quality. The photos were shipped from US to Mumbai, India and they were printed from one of the top of the line HP printing houses in the US. It is really very impressive and inspiring to see how much effort is being placed on Quality at this web-site. I have purchased a few products in the past also and have always noted that product quality, price, shipping speed and packaging are really top notch. The overall service is probably as good as international shopping web-sites like [amazon.com], if not better. Really excellent Job guys! Please keep it up! Thank you very much Krishnastore.com! i really love these Krishna paintings and will continue shopping from your site! HARE KRISHNA!
