While Krishna is known as the supreme God in Hindu epics, he is also revered for his fun loving side, best expressed during his childhood in Gokul. The stories of Krishna's mischevous antics and pranks form the base for most of the epics paying tribute to him. This exquisite jade sculpture depicts Lord Krishna as the delightful charming child, charming everyone around him and mesmerizing them with the beautiful music he composed on his flute. The master sculptor's skill and attention to detail is evident in the carving around the face and the peaceful expression of Krishna as he is lost in the music that he has created. The sculpture makes the music come alive and you can hear the notes as they waft through the woods of Gokul.
Lord Ganesha, the fun loving, elephant headed god in Hindu mythology is one of the most revered and beloved deities in Hindu mythology. Considered the patron saint of the arts and the intellect, Ganesha is also revered for his ability to help his devotees overcome obstacles and difficulties. Known for his benevolence, it is said that Ganesha will bless and grant boons to all those who worship him with faith and in belief. This exquisite jade sculpture depicts Ganesha as he is classically depicted in the epics: the trunk turning to the left symbolizes the power of the ida nadi within our own body, while symbolizing Ganesha's blessings to his devotees to remain prosperous and enjoy the fruits of their work. The attention to detail by the master craftsman perfectly captures Ganesha's benevolent expression and highlights his position as a beloved, well revered Indian God.
