From our vintage collection: An exquisite brass sculpture of the hindu god Krishna known a the Nandgopal and fondly as 'Balakrishna', considered to be the most loved avatar of Lord Vishnu and the masses.
Balakrishna - literally meaning the child Krishna sometimes translated as divine child Krishna is historically one of the early forms of worship of Krishnaism.
In this sculpture, the Hindu deity is seen sitting on a brass swing with chains and hooks depicting the mythical yali for protection and a vessel of homemade butter or Makhan.
Krishna, the eternal ruler of hearts, stole butter from the neighbourhood. Along with his friends, he would quietly enter people’s houses and grab clay pots full of freshly churned butter. And hence even till date he is addressed as Makhan Chor, meaning butter thief.
A collectors items indeed!
Measures: Height 28 cm with chains x Length 14 cm x Depth 8.5 cm.
