Description
The legendary hero Krishna, eighth incarnation of Vishnu, is perhaps the most popular god in all Hindu mythology. Often shown with blue skin, Krishna appears in a variety of guises: as a baby, as a cowherd, as the lover, as Bhagata the adorable one. In this splendid statue he is shown kneeling as a young child, wearing little more than a topknot and a necklace. Even if we did not know this was Krishna, the bold and powerful lines of the sculpture would hint at his divine stature. - (FZ.256)
