What sets this lamp apart from stylised run-of-the-mill brass lamps is the superbly sculpted Krishnaji figurine that tops it. His lissome physique has been portrayed with great perfection, the smooth limbs giving off a gold-like sheen. The level of detail in His dhoti, the sashes dangling from either side of His hip, and the ornaments clasping His torso and arms, and ankles are sure to make you pause and wonder each time you light this lamp. His countenance satchidananda. Large karnaphool complement the elaborate crown He wears, beginning at His lusciously arched brow and emerging into a curvaceous aureole with tassels on either side.
Beneath the pedestal on which He characteristically balances His feet, four parrots are perched on to the pole of the lamp. Each of the plumages has been carved in remarkable detail and with wondrous symmetry. From the subtle curvature of the tails, to the angle and features of their gentle heads, the uniformity is beyond artistic reproach. Such is the lifelike stance of the birds that they are enraptured by the divine music of His flute and cannot bring themselves to fly off from the lamp. From beneath the parrots' tails the body of the lamp descends into a pattern of ringlets, each diametrically larger than the last, till an angular-edged ringlet. The miniscule, foliage-like curves of the stand is in likeness with the aureole on top, lending to the composition a soothing wholeness.
