His flute playing would beguile the cow herder's daughters whom were all in love with Krishna. Krishna is a hero and central figure of Bhagavad-Gita. He loved life and lived his time on this earth to the fullest.

Care:  Grey marble is a delicate stone which gives the artist the ability to carve very fine details in it as one can see by the beautiful detail work done on all these statues.  When cleaning the statue it is best to use a clean paint brush or a cotton cloth to go over the piece and effectively remove all the dust.  DO NOT USE OIL of any type as this will seep into the stone and discolor the statue.    
About Krishna

One of the most widely revered and most popular of all Indian divinities, is Krishna worshipped as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Vishnu. Krishna became the focus of a large number of devotional cults, which over the centuries have produced a wealth of religious poetry, music, painting and sculpture.

The child Krishna was adored for his mischievous pranks; he also performed many miracles and slew demons. As a youth, the cowherd Krishna became renown as a lover, the sound of his flute prompting gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherds) to leave their homes to dance ecstatically with him in the forests. His favorite among them was the beautiful Radha. Krishna's youthful dalliances with the gopis are interpreted as symbolic of the loving interplay between God and the human soul. Krishna affirms life in his pranks, music and lovemaking.

The rich variety of legends associated with Krishna's life led to an abundance of representation in painting and sculpture. The most reknown story surrounding Krishna is the Bahgavad Gita or Gita which is considered one of the most importatnt Hindu texts. The Gita is the conversation between Krishna and Arjuna. Krishna is explaining to Arjuna that it is Arjuna's moral obligation to fight in a war that will put him against some members of his family. Krishna like Vishnu is an upholder of the moral order of the universe.
