Krishna the eighth incarnation of Vishnu belongs to the Third Age or the Dvapar yuga. Vishnu then manifests himself as the Dark-One (Krishna), the embodiment of love, of the divine joy that destroys all pain. The principal reason for which Vishnu assumed this Avatar was to end the tyranny of king Kamsa.

Radha shown here with Krishna is the most important of Krishna's many female friends. The love between Krishna and Radha, and Radha's devotion to her lover, in time became allegory for the love between Krishna the god and his followers, as well as of the follower's devotion (bhakti) to the god. In addition, the two-in-one Krishna-Radha embodies the tantric principle of the two aspects of the divine (male and female), which together form the one formless reality.

During his life on earth Krishna defeated many enemies. He slew the above mentioned king Kamsa and the snake king Kaliya, but was also victorious in his battles with the Vedic god Indra on several occasions.

He is shown here playing his trademark flute.
