Exclusive to the British Museum, a greetings card inspired by a 18th-19th century painting of Krishna and Radha.

This card forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Feminine power: the divine to the demonic.

The card is printed in the UK and includes an envelope. The inside of the card is blank for your message, and the card and envelope are sealed with a removable paper sticker, avoiding the need for excess plastic packaging.

The card is based on a gouache painting from Rajasthan, India, which dates to around 1790-1810, and shows the blue-skinned god Krishna embracing his lover, the mortal woman Radha. The couple are seated on a terrace, wearing fine clothes and pearls. Radha is often associated with the passion and pleasure of romantic relationships, and the couple were frequently portrayed in Indian art from this period.

A beautiful souvenir of the exhibition.
