Measures (Height) 23.5cm/9"
An antique Indonesian Java style standing Krishna statue, depicting Krishna offering protection.
Krishna is stood on a round lotus leaf pedestal, which in itself is stood upon a square pedestal. In his hand he holds a Kalasha. The kalasha is considered a symbol of abundance and "source of life" in the Vedas. It is referred to as "overflowing full vase" in the Vedas. The Kalasha is believed to contain amrita, the elixir of life, and thus is viewed as a symbol of abundance, wisdom, and immortality.
Krishna, the most popular avatar of Vishnu, is represented here with the right hand raised in a gesture of protection. Upon his head he wears a decorative Javanese style tiara in front of his Kirita-Makuta or tall conical crown. This symbolises control over Positive and Negative attitudes.
The decorated halo behind his head represents his divinity. The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly.The details of this piece are particularly appealing.
The perfect traditional in appearance Krishna to bring serenity and timeless style to you home, office or sacred space.
