Of indisputable beauty and innocence, the baby Krishna is here depicted at His favourite activity. He is on the floor with a pot of butter supported in the crease of a leg, whilst the other is stretched out to support His frame. With one hand He holds the precious pot in place, and with the other He has just scooped up a handful of deliciousness from within the same. The perfectly symmetrical arch of His brow and the full pout betray the joy it is giving Him. This lifelike sculpture has the stance of a child - the angle of the neck is such as if He is looking up at a shortly approaching Ma Yashoda.
His shringar is replete. Cascading necklaces, two sets of amulets, anklets, kundalas, and henna. A short dhoti tied right beneath the navel barely reaches the mid-thigh. A sash crosses His chubby torso, its ends reaching below the dhoti. The pot in His hand is modelled after the simple clay pots in Indian homes used to preserve milk and its products. The divine iconography of the deity in question is intact - broad shoulders, a narrow waist, and a gracious brow that resembles the outstretched wings of the mighty albatross. His locks are pulled back and piled atop His head in a neat little bun. Placed on a wide inverted-lotus pedestal, this baby Krishna figurine done in stone-finish brass inspires the devotee with maternal ardour and love.
