Description This carving is a truly marvelous depiction of the Hindu god Krishna!  Krishna is the centerpiece of the sculpture.  He is playing his flute and painted blue as is customary for Krishna.  While playing his flute, Krishna is referred to as Gopal Krishna.  The sculpture boasts 7 large, beautifully carved peacocks with the top of the statue crowned with a peacock displaying all his feathers.  The details of the peacocks are exceptional!  On either side of the double lotus base that Krishna is standing upon are two beasts called yalis.  A yali is a mythical beast that is a cross between a lion, an elephant and an alligator.  On the front of the base are cows playing.  Krishna was a favorite among the cow herders daughters and is often seen in sculpture accompanied by cows.

The term "Kodi" refers to the style in which the statue was carved.  Kodi sculptures have much more detail in them than traditional sculpture and therefore require much more time and artistic skill.

This Krishna sculpture is a one of a kind wood statue hand carved by the wood artists of South India.  The sculpture pictured is the only sculpture Lotus Sculpture has like this in our store.  When you order this piece you will receive this exact sculpture.  It is truly one of a kind as there is only one made exactly like this!

Care

"The use of a wood polish will keep the wood looking fresh and the colors vibrant."

Wood statues are easy to take care of as they just need some annual upkeep to keep them looking as they did when they were first carved.  All the wood used by Lotus Sculpure's artists is dried out for months.  Moisture causes cracks in the sculpture as the wood contracts and expands in different temperatures.  Our wood has little to no moisture in it assuring that the sculpture is not going to crack in its journey into different climates.  Here are some simple tips to keep your statue in good condition:

  • Dust the statue as needed to prevent dirt build up
  • To make the statue shine use a natural wood cleaner and a cotton cloth to buff the sculpture
We prefer Old English to polish and buff our statues.  The use of a wood polish like Old English will keep the wood looking fresh and keep the colors looking vibrant.  For natural wood and painted wooden statues we recommend Old English for lighter woods.  For darker wood statues we recommend Old English for darker woods.  Lotus Sculpture cleans and polishes each  wooden statue prior to shipping them to the customer.

We recommend keeping wooden statues in an indoor environment.  Wood statues can go outside however, they will wear more quickly and develop an antique appearance.  If you would like to put a wood statue from Lotus Sculpture outside and keep the same appearance of the sculpture we would recommend first coating the statue with a couple of layers of sealant or polyurethane.  We would then recommend placing the statue in a partially covered area.  The more exposure to the elements the more the statue will wear over time.   Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions regarding your wooden statue from Lotus Sculpture, (760) 994-4455 or [email protected]
