A halo frames Krishna's face which is further adorned with a high crown. Wearing a garland of fresh flowers he radiates an inward looking smile. A prodigious amount of jewelry including thick bangles and armlets ornaments his body. The thick lips are sensuous and kiss his flute creating music in the process. Typically, his left leg is crossed in front of the right as is most often the case when Krishna is shown fluting. An orange clinging dhoti held together by an elaborate waistband nearly reaches his ankles. Bejewelled tassels cascade down the dhoti. His upper body is bereft of any garment.

Krishna stands in the tribhanga posture (the head, torso, and legs, all slanting in contrary directions), as does Radha, albeit in the opposite direction, forming an interesting contrast. While Krishna's face is slender and longer, Radha's is rounder and hence more childish in appearance. In addition to a collar choker enclosing her short neck a longer necklace waterfalls between the wide and deep chasm between her breasts. A floral bodice clings to these nubile orbs which taper down to a thin yet curvaceous waist. Her lower drape is a dhoti like Krishna's.

Radha's right hand, in response to Krishna's melody, is raised in a joyous gesture gleaned from the repertoire of classical Indian dance. The left simultaneously upholds a shooting lotus, reaching up to her hair. Unlike Krishna she is uncrowned and her hair is symmetrically arranged in coils with a rift in between, where an ornament lies ensconced. The excess tresses are beautifully piled high in a bun held together by a jewelled hair band.

An adorable cow, balancing its front hoofs on a rock, delightfully nuzzles upto Radha. The entire composition is situated on a two-tiered lotus pedestal.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
