Sweet notes from the alluring flute echoes nectar from his
        lips.
His restless eyes glance, his head sways, earrings play at his
        cheeks.
My heart recalls Hari here in his love dance,
Playing seductively, laughing, mocking me.

                                                                 --- Gita Govinda.

Krishna here strikes his familiar stance with the right leg crossing the upright left leg. While the left foot is placed flat, only the toes of the right touch the lotus base. This posture is known as the 'svastika,' or auspicious pose. This stance is most commonly associated with Krishna.

The bodies of both Radha and Krishna tilt similarly. This particular posture of the body where the head, torso, and legs slant in contrary directions is known as tribhanga. The legs and hips jutt to the right, the trunk to the left, and the neck and head then again gently to the right. It is a lyrical, dreamy, very graceful pose. The three curves formed by the body symbolize the three worlds, upper, lower and middle, better known in Sanskrit as triloka. This is also popularly known as the posture of three bends.

The divine couple stand on a lotus pedestal, attired in similar dhotis, held in place by elaborate girdles. Radha supports Krishna's flute. Both are heavily bejewelled, being adorned with numerous necklaces, bracelets and anklets. A cow peeps from behind the duo. The cow has been since time immemorial an important auspicious animal in the annals of Indian thought. But surprisingly, its representation has been rare and far between in the art of the subcontinent. The answer lies in the fact that it is not associated with any deity in the form of its vehicle, as compared to the bull of Shiva or eagle of Vishnu. Nonetheless, India being a primarily agricultural economy, this animal is much venerated, and ascribed wish-fulfilling attributes. Indeed the cow is the national animal of Nepal, the world's only Hindu kingdom. Krishna is naturally associated with the cow, he having spent his childhood as an ordinary cowherd in Vrindavan, where he enchanted the cowherdeses of Vrindavan with the sweet sound of his flute.

I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
