As I was painting after a long gap, it had to be related to something/someone I adore. Since childhood, out of all stories and mythology I have read and heard, Krishna has been my favourite superhero.
Krishna's teachings mainly revolve around "Maya", that is, illusory nature of the universe. Our whole life and the whole manifested universe is his 'Maya'. The feathers of peacock exemplifies Maya in a manner which human mind can try to grasp. The brilliant colors of peacock do not arise from the correspondingly colored pigments. Instead, they arise from the phenomenon called 'structural coloration'. The light waves entering the different thickness of keratin layers on peacock feathers get out of phase and undergo interference. The resulting light wave patterns give the beautiful play of colors which the human eyes see. The 'actual' color is just deep brown pigment which occurs in the background of these keratin layers.
Thus, Krishna wears a brilliant example of his own Maya in his crown and stimulates our intelligence to understand the fact that the whole universe is a diverse manifestation of one single divinity. If we start wearing this idea in our mind, like Krishna wears its symbolically in his crown, we can enjoy this life in the manner Krishna tell us to.
