Intimately Dancing Radha-Krishna

Intimately Dancing Radha-Krishna

Intimately Dancing Radha-Krishna

The world's most masterful wood-carvers reside in the recesses of South India. With the practice of this art running across generations of artisan families, the most perfect of wooden sculptures are to be found here. This sculpture is of the youthful Lord Krishna breaking into dance with His beloved, Radha. Done up in richly hued pastels that go best with the base material, the imposing pedestal and the intricately carved mount reflect the mood of the twin deity.

Of all the sculptures that depict the togetherness of Radha-Krishna, this one stands out. Here they are caught in the step of a complex dance routine. Their limbs are entwined in each other’s, Her body seemingly motioning away from His as He draws Her close. Their gracious hips are clad in dhoties and kamarbands of matching colour, probably clinking sonorously against each other as the dancers motion.

Sculpted after the style of South Indian temple architecture, this is an unusual composition of the amorous couple. Radha has a bow and a conch in Her hands; with one hand Lord Krishna holds Her bow, with the other He holds Her by the shoulder. From the luxuriant adornments on their bodies to the composure of their finely cut countenance, this sculpture is a testament to the inter-generational pursuit of art prevalent in India to this day.

In the lush wilderness, the lovers dance in each other’s arms. Through the thick vines that surround them emerge a plethora of wild fauna, an example of which is to be found at the feet of Lord Krishna. A canopy of emerald-green shields them from the heavens above. Within that canopy is the unmistakable Kirtimukham, an image of the ferociousness of kala (time), whose presence is integral to this school of sculpture.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
