Krishna is one of the most complex personalities in the Hindu pantheon. He is a Machiavellian statesman as well as a philosopher par excellence in the Mahabharata. In the Bhagawat Purana, he is the cowherd god, at once a child hero and a slayer of demons and the romantic shepherd boy who charms the milkmaids of Braj with his sexuality as well as song and dance.

On the fanned out multiple hoods of a serpent dances Krishna. Here, he is depicted as a naked child, adorned only with ornaments, as small children often are in Indian villages. In one hand he holds the serpent's tail and with the right hand, he forms the gesture of reassurance (abhayamudra).

The serpent, on the head of whom rests the left foot of young Krishna, is called Kaliya and he lived in the river Yamuna. Once it was brought to Krishna's attention that the reptilian titan was polluting the waters of the river which made it hazardous for everybody else. So Krishna decide to teach him a lesson and after subduing him performed a victory dance on his hood to the amazement of all inhabitants of Braj. Krishna right hand reassures both, the inhabitants of Braj and the devotees who behold the picture. The name of the serpent Kaliya (Kala) makes this a dance of victory over time and death as well.

Done only in two shades of colours, this attractive work shows an aptitude for colour and design, plus talent and skill.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
