Exquisite brass sculpture of Hindu God Krishna playing the flute standing on a bed of 12 beautifully crafted oil lamps.
Standing 30 cm tall, this vintage brass statue is hand crafted with delicate engraving and fine details by artisans from the state of Uttar Pradesh in Northern India for their most beloved of Hindu Gods shown playing the flute.
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.
One of the most powerful incarnations of Vishnu, the Godhead of the Hindu Trinity of deities and of all the Vishnu Avataras, he is the most popular, 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.
