Description Krishna is the eighth incarnation or avatar of Lord Vishnu.  Krishna is famous for playing the flute.  His flute playing would beguile the cow herder's daughters whom were all in love with Krishna.  Krishna, besides being a hero and central figure of Bhagavad-Gita, was seen as an affirmation of life.  He loved life and lived his time on this earth to the fullest.  The flute he plays is decorated with a yali head on the end of it.  A yali is a mythical beast that is a cross between a lion, an elephant and an alligator.   There is a parrot perched on his shoulder.  He is highly decorated wearing a tell crown, a large string of malas and lavish leggings with ornate tassels spiraling off of them.  A unique and beautiful gopal Krishna 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.
