Krishna stands in the tribhanga posture (the head, torso, and legs, all slanting in contrary directions),
as does Radha, albeit in the opposite direction, forming an interesting contrast. 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, reaching up to her hair. Unlike
Krishna she is uncrowned and her hair is symmetrically arranged in coils
with a rift in between, where an ornament lies ensconced. The excess tresses
are beautifully piled high in a bun held together by a jewelled hair band.
An adorable cow, balancing its front hoofs on a rock, delightfully nuzzles
upto Radha. The entire composition is situated on a two-tiered lotus pedestal.
