While Krishna's face is slender and longer, Radha's is rounder and hence more childish in appearance. In addition to a collar choker enclosing her short neck a longer necklace waterfalls between the wide and deep chasm between her breasts. A floral bodice clings to these nubile orbs which taper down to a thin yet curvaceous waist. Her lower drape is a dhoti like Krishna's.
Radha's right hand, in response to Krishna's melody, is raised in a joyous gesture gleaned from the repertoire of classical Indian dance. The left simultaneously upholds a shooting lotus. Unlike Krishna she is uncrowned and her hair is symmetrically arranged with a rift in between, where an ornament lies ensconced. The excess tresses are beautifully piled high in buns held together by jewelled hair bands.
An adorable cow, balancing its front hoofs on a rock, delightfully nuzzles up to Radha. The entire composition is situated on a three-tiered lotus pedestal.
