Of the many names that are used by the devotees of Krishna to address him, “Hari”- “one who takes away” is a beautiful expression of the powers and benevolence of Krishna, who begins by “taking away” the material possessions and ends with taking away the worldly attachments and sins of his devotees, thus ensuring that his children achieve “Moksha”, the ultimate human goal.

This awe-striking stone Sri Krishna statue is an artist’s ode to the omnipresent Lord, whose Bhakti (devotion) ensures that the human soul reaches its final destination. Eight-armed celestial form of Krishna stands in the middle of this marvelously detailed stone statue, which is adorned with numerous fine motifs and creative devices and is a shrine unto itself. The mesmerizing Roopa of Krishna is surrounded by beautiful celestial maidens who stand with their hands folded, in awe of the greatness of the beloved of the gopis, Gandharvas (heavenly beings) and Garuda (Vishnu’s mount) and Lord Hanuman- the statue reminding us of the heavenly abode of Krishna “Goloka”, from where he looks after the earthly beings.


Every element of this stone Krishna sculpture takes us to some pleasing episode from his life, which instantly sparks loving devotion in us. The Kadamba tree which forms a canopy for Sri Krishna is famous for providing Krishna with its shade when the great lord played his flute for the residents of Vrindavana. The cow that stands behind “Gopala”- the protector of cows and cowherds, licking his foot, an act that suggests the animal’s fondness towards Krishna, hints at his deep love for the folks of Vrindavana.


On the panel in front of the platform on which Krishna stands, the central image, framed by a beautiful arch is the representation of Krishna dancing on the hood of the serpent Kaaliya, while the other portions depict him playing his flute. The lowermost portion shows cows in different positions, some of them with their calf- a heartwarming picture of maternal affection, not much different from the love Krishna has for his children, all of us.


Much thought has been put into even the decorations of this stone Sri Krishna sculpture. Peacocks (symbols of beauty and royalty) sit on the top of the image as well as the Kadamba tree. Lotus petals and floral vines are used in the aureole that surrounds Sri Krishna, which is also ornamented by “Gaja-Yali”- a composite mythical animal (usually a lion and an elephant or Gaja).


In the center of these awe-inspiring iconographical features in this stone image, is the divine Sri Krishna- smiling inwardly, his face delineated with such intricacy that one can easily forget that we are looking at an idol. Amidst all that is mesmerizing in the Universe, Sri Hari, Krishna with his enchanting presence takes away our breath as well as our troubles.
