This is an acrylic mural done on the wall in my residence, featuring the great devotees of the lord.

The conch and the discuss have been personified. Others include Narada, his proteges Dhruva and Prahlada. Gajendra the elephant, Kamadhenu, the cow of plenty, Garuda and Hanuman, Arjuna, and the great devotees Mirabai and Andal from the south are also featured. Important shlokas from the Geeta, and the various mantras, which helped the devotees attain salvation are briefly mentioned.

This is a visualisation of the great saint Vedanta Desika of the 11th c. whose Gopala Vimshati features this posture of Krishna, which he says should be in his memory when he breathes his last.
