The Srimad Bhagvatam is a narration of the activities and transcendental pastimes of Krishna. It tells tales of one who is undeniably human as well as divine.

One of the most familiar images in Indian art is that of a fluting Krishna. He was an expert in playing the flute and his girlfriends, the gopis were captivated by the sound vibration, which attracted not only them but all living creatures who heard it.

Here, the cowherd Krishna stands against a cow grazing on the grass. Standing with the legs crossing at the knee, one foot in front of the other, he holds the flute horizontally close to his chin. He wears a small crown, with a peacock feather tucked in, and a garland in his neck. In a stiff, tribal idiom, Krishna does not wear ostentatious ornaments but is known for his simplicity. He wears a long lower garment and a shoulder cloth, hanging affront on both his shoulders. The face is small and round with features prominently depicted. The entire piece has ribbed lines indicative of the procedure it was cast in.
