This is an exquisite brass sculpture of Hindu God Krishna playing the flute standing on an engraved octagonal pedestal. Standing 24 cm tall, this vintage statue of Lord Krishna is crafted by artisans from the state of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India.
The great exponent of the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna is the god of compassion, tenderness, and love in Hinduism and is one of the most popular and widely revered among Indian divinities and perhaps one closest to the heart of the masses.
Dark and extremely handsome, the word Krishna literally means 'black', and black also connotes mysteriousness and a favourite with all the village girls called "Gopis".
The anecdotes and narratives of Krishna's life are generally titled as Krishna Leela. He is a central character in the Indian Epics Mahabharata, Bhagvata Purana and the Bhagavad Gita and is also potrayed in various perspectives: A god-child, a prankster, a model lover, a divine hero, and as the supreme power.
