Krishna Making Music Under The Kadamba

There is no substitute to Krishna. Loved and revered by almost every Hindu in the subcontinent and beyond, His charms are many. His form, dusky and curvaceous, is recognisable from the signature tribhanga silhouette. His way with the flute is divine, and lures those who listen to His music into the path of loving devotion. There was not a single woman in Vrindavan, young or old, in His time who was not swept off Her feet with His charms. No wonder that He is the deity of choice for artisans to this day to project onto their art. Paintings and films and literature on Krishna abound, this beauteous sculpture has been handpicked for the superbly skilled portrayal of Hinduism's favourite deity.

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.
