Krishna is the Supreme Being, the all attractive, all desirable incarnation of God. He is the eighth incarnation of Lord Vishnu (God in the form of preserver) who appears on earth as a divine cattle herder and charioteer to maintain order and keep the positive forces of humanity victorious. Krishna is most associated with the practice of Bhakti and when we chant the different names of Krishna, we call Him into our hearts. We become the Gopis (milk maidens) who long to be united with Him. We become the flute that He animates with His breath.
This wall hanging sculpture was made from cutting and welding sheet metal steel as well as pieces of pipe for the flute and steel bar for the lotus stem. The metal was coated with copper and treated with patina, creating the blue oxidized coloring. For the clothing and crown, the metal was ground with an angle grinder and then painted with a translucent solvent dye, allowing the steel to shine through. The whole pieces was sprayed with a protective lacquer.
Krishna measures 5 feet tall by 2.5 feet wide and is 1 foot deep.
