He has a protruding stomach with a prominent navel and thick, healthy legs, a result perhaps of His feasting on loads of butter, most of it stolen from the milk-maidens of the town of Vrindavan. Actually what Lord Krishna stole was not merely the gopis’ butter, but their hearts, softened to a butter-like quality by viewing His adorable and childish antics.
This sculpture was created in the city of Aligarh, not far from the holy town of Vrindavan.
