Maharaja Priyavrata Illuminates the Planetary Systems
oil on canvas (1997)
52 x 66 cm

Scriptural reference:

While Priyavrata was ruling over the entire universe he became dissatisfied with the sun, since it gave light only in one half of the universe due to its rotation. Therefore he decided to drive with his chariot behind the sun. In this way there was no night in the universe anymore, but everywhere was light all the time. Priyavrata Maharaja could do such wonderful things due to the power he received from worshiping Krishna

(Srimad-Bhagavatam 5.1.31)
