26" Superfine Bronze Kaliya Krishna | Hoysala Art
Item Details
Description
26" Superfine Bronze Kaliya Krishna | Hoysala Art. In the evolution of Indian aesthetics, the art of the Hoysala period played a definitive role. The Lord Krishna statue that you see on this page illustrates the point. As a contemporary reproduction of the temple architecture and iconography of those times, it is a fine example. It depicts the Krishna avatara of Vishnu attaining victory over Kaliya.
This pure bronze Krishna captures the image of the triumph of the divine over adharma. Legend has it that having displaced the wicket serpent from its comfort zone, the Lord famously danced on the multi-hooded head of Kaliya. Its tail is in the victorious grip of the Lord. The namaskaram figure in the belly of the naga attests to His defeat and humility.
The fine, gold-toned finish comes from the pure bronze medium. It is a superior medium to work with and demands a great deal of skill and shraddha on the part of the sculptor. Note the sheer proportion of detail that bronze accommodates into the composition, from every aspect of the Lord’s adornment (predominant over attire) to the superficial anatomy of Kaliya.
