Lord Krishna playing the Flute
Mid 20th Century
4” tall x 2.25” wide x 1.75” deep
Krishna is the most important of the ten incarnations of the Hindu god Vishnu. Here he is shown with his characteristic flute, a symbol of his time spent as a cowherd. When he played his flute the animals around would stand still and worship him, and the music would entice gopis (cowgirls) to come and dance with him.
Lord Krishna is the god of protection, compassion, tenderness, and love.
ॐ कृष्णाय नम
Om Krishnaya Namah
