An illustration from the Harivamsa: Krishna frolicking with the Gopis in the Yamuna
Krishna is seen engaged in water-sports with his companions and gopis in the Yamuna. Each of his companions is pictured with his consort - Arjuna with Subhadra, Balarama with Revati, Pradyumna with Rati - but the playful and universally adored Krishna is seen multiple times, identifiable by his saffron-colored robes, each time in the company of a separate consort.
