Antique hand carved wooden Krishna or Avatar of love. Krishna is the eighth incarnation or avatar of Lord Vishnu. Krishna is famous for playing the flute. His flute playing would beguile the cow herder's daughters whom were all in love with Krishna. Krishna, besides being a hero and central figure of Bhagavad - Gita, was seen as an affirmation of life. He loved life and lived his time on this earth to the fullest. There is a unique pattern artistically carved on both side connecting waist and hands, with pointed edge at the right bottom, licking the backside of his foot. There is an arch surrounding him with Mahakala or "great time" looming above him.
The painting scheme is adopted from the bright colors used in south Indian temples. The temples are known for their large gopurams or towers that rise up into the sky decorated with various gods and goddesses. The gopurams are painted in vibrant colors which mirror the vibrant of the life we live. This is a unique rare piece as Krishna of this style are very rare.
Note: due to age the original flute is missing out.
