A one-of-a-kind Radha-Krishna idiom. This twin doll ensemble is fit to grace the home of the Vaishnava devotee with a playful nature. Alternatively, these would make a culturally significant addition to the playthings of your child. Fashioned from wood, the finish betrays tribal influences. Despite the primitive-style handiwork, the sophistication is unmistakable.
Simplistic plinths beneath the deities’ feet in a solid, earthy brown colour. Glittering glass beads in varied colours embossed in traditional patterns all over the surface. Radha is clad in a piece of vermillion silk woven in with gracious gold threads. It is cinched at the waist with a bejewelled belt and completed by pearl ornaments punctuated by shiny bits of glass.
The features on both faces are engraved with precision and symmetry. Lord Krishna is wearing a white dhoti laced with peeta-coloured silk (‘peeta’ means amber). The lovers look identical, almost as if they are one. The beauty of Radha-Krishna’s togetherness has been captured in its very essence and spirit in this folk doll ensemble.
