The most popular god in the Hindu pantheon, Krishna has been worshiped across India for centuries. The eighth avitar of the god Vishnu, Krishna's legendary exploits are celebrated in art and song. Often shown with blue skin, Krishna is worshiped in a variety of guises; as an infant, as Gopala the cowherd, as a warrior, a lover, and as Bhagata the adorable one. This is Krishna at his most playful and erotic, the king of love. A work in the provincial style, this unusual sculpture glows still with the aura of devotion that infuses the best religious art. - (FZ.255)
