Summer festivities at Kakaroli. The Lords are set in an open veranda / courtyard in front of a pool.  Live tortoise and fish swim amongst lotus as musicans play and a Goswami offers arti to the Lord. Pichoi with "tree of life" motif is in the background. Compare this with the pichoi as depicted in the picture below.  Though the svarup of the Lord is small, here is it shown to dwarf the other figures, who are drawn according to importance and are not set to scale.
