This is an unconventional statue of Lord Krishna sculpted in the ever-so-famous jade gemstone, having the quality of being hard, compact, depicted in usually glowing light green shade. It is carved using abrasives and not cutting tools because of its quality of being supremely hard; large pieces are divided by a taut cord or thin slate charged with abrasives. It symbolizes love, purity and greatness.
The Murlidhara holds a stylized flute, standing in his usual run-of-the-mill pose on a double lotus plinth embossed marvelously. He wears a flawless pleated dhoti with flower motifs and a golden-red border framing its edges and an exquisite netted kamarband loaded with sequence work. The free throw of his stole across the arms is one-of-a-kind, blended in green and burgundy colors, forming absolute pleats bordered with parsleys and a veil of flowers.
Lord Krishna is worshipped as the eighth avatar of Lord Vishnu and the god of compassion, tenderness and love in Hinduism, as is also symbolized by the presence of the peacock, the national bird of love and peace, behind him in the sculpture; decked up with ravishing gold jewels and a long white flower garland hangs round his neck. His haloed head glows in harmony with the deep hypnotized curvature of eyes and the crown presented by a peacock feather on the top. This large statue highlights the very essence of Krishna in his cheerful and joyous mood; his presence has the capability of spreading its divine aura at any place.
