Long-Plaited Lord Krishna

One hears the youthful Vrindavan cowherd from a distance. Through the region’s evergreen forests He roams, herding His beloved cows before Him as He plays on the flute. A sweet, serene music emanates from the instrument as His dexterous fingers motion over the apertures, beckoning man and cow alike. To the Vaishnavite devotee, it is the sweetest sound in the world and one almost begins to hear it if one stares long enough at the murti that you see on this page.

A bitone brass number - a rugged earthy green, with overtones of yellow gold. Lord Krishna is in His tribhanga murari roopa or form. In Sanskrt ‘tri’ stands for three, ‘bhanga’ for jutting out: note how His tall physique juts out laterally at the shoulders, the hips, and the ankles. ‘Murari’ is the Sanskrt word for flute-player. The tribhanga murari stance, crucial to the iconography of the adolescent deity, brings out the handsomeness of the Lord and the romance of His persona. No wonder He is the refuge of milkmaids (gopiyaan) in Vrindavan and bhaktas (devotees) the world over.

In this composition, the Lord is attired in a richly embroidered dhoti. It fits closely around the hips and ends just above the ankles. His torso is overlain with streams of necklaces that begin at the clavicles and go all the way down to the knees. The gorgeous pleats of His angavastram descend all the way to the surface of the lotus pedestal He stands on. Finally, a long beauteous plait descends down His back all the way to the hips.
