Tribhanga Murari Amuses His Friend, The Cow

Lord Krishna is one of the biggest stars who has dominated and influenced the Indian thought, life and culture in a very profound way. Here he stands on a lotus plinth, inverted on a huge, heighted mesmerizing pedestal carved in two layers in astonishing patterns. He stands in his usual run-of-the-mill posture, playing murli and eyes closed in the deep essence of its music.

Kamadhenu, the wish fulfilling Cow also known as the Surashi Cow stands behind him bestowing every kind of happiness. Krishna is a cowherd boy in the agricultural community of Goloka, Vrindavan, hence cow and Krishna have always been together.

The stylistic crown has major South Indian temple carvings and Krishna wears a long kamarband and robes flowing down in its admiring beauty. The haloed head compliments the divinity of this ever so youthful loving god wearing remarkable jewels on his slender body. The overall appearance of this bronze sculpture is one of a kind.

The beauty of this fine Bangalore bronze lies in its iconographic as well as aesthetic perfection. The Lord Krishna composition is replete. The unmistakable tribhanga stance (the body laterally jutting out at three points namely the shoulders, the hips, and the knees). The characteristic entwining of His gracious feet. The flute in His fingers; and His friend, the cow, that stands behind Him, quietly listening to His divine playing. Both have the same calm, gathered, benevolent demeanour.

 

Despite having chosen a common subject to work with, the sculptor has finished this work with a good deal of dynamism. Note how the cow seems to be lowering its head on a patch of grass, its tail almost getting caught up in its hind legs. Lord Krishna’s head is slightly tilted back, partly from the weight of the crown and partly subconsciously in a divine effort to hit the right note.

 

As for aesthetics, the handiwork of the region remains unrivalled by anything in India’s contemporary sculptural tradition. The fine medium of bronze has been worked into projections of intricate clothing and shringar, which is best appreciated by zooming in on. Lord Krishna has a long, lissome form that is set off by the tall, ornate crown on His head. Finally, the one-atop-the-other style of pedestal sets this murti apart from usual bronze sculptures.
