For ages, the story of Krishna had been a favorite theme for sculptures, artists, singers and  stage performers.  Artists, traditional as well as folklore from villages, have painted the various events of Krishna ’s life so enchanting.
 The attached picture is a folklore painting from Andhra Pradesh – Kalamkari painting on cloth. It portrays some events of destroying demons.

 Such folklore pictures are popular in Orissa and Maharashtra also.  In olden days, Bards used to take small pictures like these to villages, and showing them explain the story.
