Gopis, the cowherd girls of Vrindavana and Brija, whose love and endeavors indebted Krishna himself, have been the center of veneration among the followers of the dark-skinned lord. Though Radha and Krishna’s other queens are often seen adorning the central position in the Vaishnava-Hindu shrines, Gopis and their eternal love for Krishna have become a part of the intangible culture of India, celebrated in legends, myths, stories, and poetries. These splendid brass statues of the milkmaids are a rare instance of an iconic celebration of the incomprehensible greatness of the beloveds of Sri Krishna.

Keeping in mind that Kanahiya never differentiates between his Gopis when it comes to reciprocating their affections, the maker of these brass murtis has given them identically exquisite forms. Both of them have grandeur in their attire and elegance in their physique. Their brilliant faces are framed by detailed hairdos, to which are attached gorgeous ear ornaments shaped in the shape of stylized flowers. Their necks, limbic as the neck of Surahi  (earthen pots) are embellished with intricately designed necklaces. On their bosoms-rounded and covered with floral patterned ornaments, falls a long neckpiece, highlighting the allure of their feminine beauty. Their waists are slender with a deeply set navel, underlined by an ornate waist belt that holds the pleats of the ethnic patterned dhoti (lower body garment) beautifully, that charmingly falls in the front. The polishing of the brass is marvelous and has added a luster to the sculptures that do full justice to the divine beauties. On their head and waist, the gopis have two pots, which are also embellished with fine patterns following the artistic vocabulary of the statue.

The pots in the Krishna-Lila (divine plays) are meant for the butter that the gopis obtain after churning milk. Krishna is known for stealing the butter and later getting reprimanded by his mother Yashoda. Gopis churning for butter and Krishna taking away the fruit of their hard work is a beautiful message in itself. It is the symbol of god’s tireless love for his devotees that he shows by entering their world, being one of them, and letting them shower him with loving words and loving rebukes. Filled with an ocean of love for the dark-skinned charmer, Gopis continue to let him enjoy his favorite butter, which is imbued with the sweet nectar of their love, and in return, Krishna gives him the gift of being in his company till time immemorial, a boon that great sages after ages of penance can not achieve.
