Krishna is a composite figure and many legends and ideas have combined to constitute the framework of his concept. He is the amalgam of both, the divine and the human.

The artist here seems to have been influenced by the Pahari school, and has delineated the theme with great devotion and ability. Krishna is shown as a Rajput prince dressed in fashionable garb, practicing with artless guile the seductive graces of a courtly lover. Wearing his favourite yellow garment and a garland of lotus buds, richly bejewelled with layers of pearl strings, and gold and emerald pendants, bangles and earrings. Instead of a crown, he wears a striped turban in a princely manner replete with kalgi and brooch and finally with the peacock feather. He keeps one hand on his waist and in the other he holds a lotus flower and buds and also his flute with the music of which he mesmerizes the cow-herdesses of Brindavana. His shoulder cloth falls on his right arm and across the left shoulder. The rich black qamarband is loosely tied across his waist.

Krishna's portrait is placed in an oval niche with browns on the outside and all the brilliant, warm colours on the inside. The ash coloured body of the god is tinged with pink at places to lend volume. The various colours of his dress compliment the palette of this wonderful creation.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
