Krishna is a composite figure and many legends and ideas have combined to constitute the framework of his concept. He is a hero, a teacher, a king, a deity - different personalities combined in one.

Here is painted the idol of Krishna on a pedestal, flanked by offerings of coconut and pure water. He is dressed in fine silk garments - the shoulder cloth turning upward; the flared dhoti also moving in the same direction, maintaining the compositional balance. Krishna wears an elaborate crown, with a flower tucked in on the side. The exquisite ornaments are worked in relief with brilliant gold paint. The flute and the yoga-danda are particularly worked upon finely.

The artist has used subdued earthy colours. Even the background has a heavily toned down beige that adds to the sober colour palette. An occasional pink and yellow cheer up the chromatic pattern. However, the sobriety of colour is intentional so as to raise the gold relief into prominence. The extensively used gold also flows on to the border, making it a visually lavish painting.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
