The luscious kadamba tree is what catches the eye foremost. The tree has been sculpted in full behind the frame of Krishna and the distribution of the branches is not symmetrical; as such the composition is realistic. Zoom in on the leaves that each branch is laden with to appreciate the details with which the margins, veins, and midribs have been carved. There is a paan-shaped halo that frames Krishna's head. A blooming lotuses crown rests on His brow tattooed with the Vaishnava tilak. The features of His face are bold and, again, hyper-realistic. The rest of Him is clad in pleated silks and sashes, which emerge from both sides of His body, and a world of shringar that would only become a roopa as heavenly as Krishna's. Note the complex engravings and curves of the sashes, the tips of graze the dual-layered lotus pedestal. Atypical of Indian iconography, Krishna is standing in the centre of a lotus in full bloom, which further rests on an blooming inverted lotus.
