Introducing our exquisite Panchaloha bronze statue of Hindu god Krishna, a captivating representation of divine melody and pastoral serenity. This statue, standing on a lotus base atop a raised platform, is an embodiment of Krishna's enchanting persona and spiritual essence.

Krishna, the embodiment of love and divine joy, is depicted playing the flute, an act that symbolizes the call to all beings to embrace their true nature. His simple yet elegant clothing and conical-shaped headdress are reminiscent of his pastoral roots and his connection with the simplicity of nature.

The many-pointed star-shaped Prabhavali behind Krishna's head is a highlight of this sculpture, representing his divine energy and the cosmic aura that surrounds him. This artistic element not only adds a spiritual depth to the statue but also creates a visually stunning backdrop that accentuates Krishna's form.

Adding to the pastoral charm of the piece is a cow positioned behind Krishna, a symbol of abundance and earthly nourishment. The cow's affectionate gesture, ready to lick Krishna's heel, reflects the bond between the divine and the natural world, and the love and reverence Krishna inspires in all creatures.

Crafted from Panchaloha, a traditional alloy revered for its spiritual significance, the statue is finished with a green patina. This patina not only adds a touch of antique allure but also beautifully contrasts with the rich, traditional coloring of the statue, highlighting the intricate details and craftsmanship.

This Panchaloha bronze statue of Krishna is more than a decorative piece; it's a celebration of spiritual joy, artistic heritage, and the universal appeal of Krishna's teachings. Ideal for a place of worship, as a centerpiece in a collection, or as an inspiring addition to any home, this statue is sure to be a cherished piece that resonates with beauty and serenity.

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.

Bronze is an extremely durable metal made from a combination of 5 metals; copper, iron, tin, with minute additions of silver and gold. This combination is called Panchaloha bronze and is the basis for making the sacred Hindu temple statues of India and the world. Copper is the most prevalent metal in the alloy. Copper also gives the metal a softer composition that allows the bronze artisans to carve the details that are prevalent in each piece.
All the South Indian bronze sculpture Lotus Sculpture carries are Panchaloham and thus suited for any home altar or community temple.

If you would like the piece to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the bronze statue.

Because of the durability of the metal not much is needed to maintain a bronze sculpture. Many of our customers purchase a bronze statue and perform daily puja and abhisheka consisting of bathing the Hindu deity in ghee, milk, coconut milk or other liquids. In this case nothing is needed to keep the statue clean as it will be bathed daily. If the sculpture is used for "darshan" or simply viewing the sculpture it is best to dust the statue as needed so no dirt collects in the details of the sculpture. For both polished golden bronzes and antique patina bronze statues if you would like the sculpture to shine use a cotton cloth with some coconut oil or other natural oil to wipe down the piece as needed.

Many of our bronze Hindu statues have been placed in outdoor temples. Bronze's durability makes it perfect for cold winters and hot summers of any climate. We suggest you bathe the sculpture every couple of months so that dirt does not collect on the sculpture and then use a cotton cloth with some natural oil to give the statue a shine. Both indoors and outdoors a bronze statue can be left alone which, overtime, will give the bronze an antique patina.

On some bronze statues you can see small hints of lime green, verde-gris patina. Some people prize this color for its age others want to remove it. If you would like to remove the verde-gris use a tooth brush with some coconut oil or other natural oil and lightly go over the verde-gris. This should remove the unwanted patina from the sculpture.

Polished Gold Bronze: Many temples and homes prefer the highly polished gold bronze for temples or home altars. In order to give the statue a bright polished sheen we recommend using a cotton rag and buffing the piece. An acid like tamarind or lemon juice will help aid this process. This takes time and effort to bring out the polish. If you are looking for a short cut; some of our customers have used a product called Brasso which has been good at bringing a tarnished golden piece back to its golden shine.
