Poised upon a compact, ornately engraved pedestal, this Lord Krishna figure is laden with ample shringar. Anklets on His lotus-like feet. A richly embroidered dhoti of silk that accentuates the slender musculature of His limbs, held an inch below the navel by a girdle of layered gold. The handsomely sculpted torso clothed in streams of bejewelled necklaces and a garland of fresh marigolds swaying down the midline of His frame. Statement amulets and bangles and chunky wristlets down the length of His curvaceous arms. Finally, a haloed crown carved with the finest proportion of symmetry and detail.
Each aspect of this standing Lord Krishna sculpture has been executed with a great deal of skill and shraddha (roughly translated to devotion). The irresistibly handsome features of His face that define a serene composure. Superbly sculpted fingers in a gentle grip around the flute. The realistic curves of the soles of His feet. Such a work of art is not only a result of but also inspires a world of transcendental devotion.
