Finely Engraved Krishnaleela Panel

Finely Engraved Krishnaleela Panel

Finely Engraved Krishnaleela Panel

A panel such as this one belongs to the walls of an ancient South Indian temple. Probably high up towards the ceiling, down the corridor leading up to the garbhagrha. As good as a standalone work of art, it tells the story of Krishnaleela or the divine playfulness of Lord Krishna. A widely revered Vishnu-avatara, He has a presence in every Indian home and temple, to which this panel is no exception.

It is a composite of five miniature panels, each recounting a historic episode from the life and leela of the Lord. Starting from the left, He stands in the midst of beauteous lovesick gopis (Vrindavan milkmaids). He overpowers the demon Keshi sent by His villainous uncle Kamsa. He plays the flute while His beloved Radha dances. He spends time in the company of His gentle friend the cow. Finally, He vanquishes the vociferous serpent Kalia. Zoom in on each of the panels to appreciate the miniscule iconography and the attention to detail despite the scale.

So are the ancillary elements of the composite panel. The constituent panels are distinguished by the Indian muses, the apsaras. They are playing musical instruments and dancing to the ballads of Krishnaleela. In the narrowly sculpted row beneath the main panels are the creatures of patalaloka, man and beast, who are seemingly holding them up. On the top are multi-tiered lotus-petal roofs after the style of ancient South Indian temples. Flanked by none other than Lord Hanuman in either corner.

The lila (divine playfulness) of Lord Krishna is unspeakably endearing and potent with meaning. Children's literature in this part of the world abound with tales of His divine exploits, which have as much to teach adults as children. This wooden panel is superbly carved with portraitures of the young God in the loving company of gopis and playmates. With the practice of this endemic art running across generations of artisan families, the most perfect of wooden sculptures are to be found in the recesses of South India.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
