A gorgeously inlaid murti of the timeless lovers from Vrindavan. The cowherd Krishna, with His best beloved, the milkmaid Radha. Sculpted from pure brass, these twin murtis have assumed a dynamic stance. While Krishna plays on the flute, Radha dances with Her hand raised in the air.
The USP of this Radha-Krishna murti is the luxuriant inlay work. Zoom in on the richly coloured resin chips, each cut out with uniform precision and hemmed in by a ring of brass. These inlaid bits define the flat surfaces of the fabrics that clothe the deities as well as the bands on their crowns.
Proof of the medium’s purity is the gracious molten gold colour. The matte cobalt and Prussian blues and scarlets of the inlay-work bring out its resplendence. Note the precise colour-scheme in which the lotus-on-plinth ensemble has been executed.
