In Vrindavana, it is considered incorrect for Krishna to be worshipped in the absence of Radha or she in his. It expresses the conviction that religion is love - that is what Radha and Krishna represent.
Krishna loves all the gopis but is satisfied only in Radha's company. Standing on an oval platform is the couple engrossed in bliss. Radharani wears a beautiful sari. A small crown, other than various ornaments adorns her. But her, beauty comes, not from jewellery, but from the inner glow of being in the highest state of love. Krishna appears in his iconographic form - legs crossed at the ankles, hands holding his flute and head bent towards his beloved. He wears a crown topped with peacock feathers, and also necklaces, bracelets and anklets; however, his beauty is but a reflection of his divinity. His dhoti and his shoulder cloth have finely engraved incisions to depict various folds of the garments. An image, small in size but monumental in its theme of love combining religion.
