$14.00

This statue of the Hindu god Krishna depicts him playing his flute.

Krishna, as the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, is worshiped in two distinct forms. First, he appeared in the role of a playful pastoral god. Krishna grew up playing many pranks and performing miraculous deeds. He sported with the gopis, or cowherdresses, whom he charmed by playing his flute, making them fall madly in love with him. All of this came to be interpreted as symbolizing lila, or divine play, and as an allegory to the power of bhakti, devotion or loving faith of a devotee for a deity.
