Krishna Playing the Flute, a Bronze Statue

13 " High x 11.5 " Wide x 7" Deep

Krishna is a bronze in the Lost Wax Technique allowing for fine details.  He is worshipped as the eighth avatar of the god Vishnu and also as the supreme God in his own right. He is the god of compassion, tenderness,  and love. He is one of the most popular and widely revered among Indian divinities. One of his wives was  Radna. They embody the tantric principle of the two aspects of the divine, male & female, forming together the One. The peacocks at the top of the Bodi Tree represent beauty, love & romance. It is said Lord Krishna cleanses the holy feet of Radha with Peacock feathers, during their playtimes in Vrindavan. It is a symbol of beauty and knowledge. The eye in the feather represents the divine wisdom or the third eye of Krishna. It helps one attain the supreme knowledge of the self.  Krishna created a cow called Surabhi and a calf called Manoratha from the left side of his body. Cows love Krishna & were devoted to him.

The flute is the human heart, and a heart that is made hollow will become a flute for the God of love to play upon. When the heart is not empty, in other words, when there is no scope in the heart, there is no place for love. Rumi, the great poet of Persia, explains this idea more clearly. He says the pains and sorrows the soul experiences through life, are like holes made in a reed flute, and it is by making these holes that a player makes the flute out of a reed. This means that the heart of man is first a reed, and the sufferings and pains it goes through make it a flute, which can then be used by God as the instrument for the music that He constantly wishes to produce. But as every reed is not a flute, so every heart is not His instrument. As the reed can be made into a flute, so the human heart can be turned into an instrument, and can be offered to the God of love. It is the human heart that becomes the harp of the angels; it is the human heart that is known as the lute of Orpheus. It was on the model of the heart of man that the first instrument of music was made, and no earthly instrument can produce the music which the heart produces, raising the mortal soul to immortality.
