Radha is the Goddess incarnate, the Supreme Mother of the Universe. Radha’s beauty and virtue is beyond compare and she is the most beloved of Krishna. Radha’s love for Krishna and Krishna’s love for Radha is the power that keeps the cosmos in existence and they are inseparable.
Krishna and Radha are the ultimate devotees of each other. Hare, is another name for Radha, so when we chant Hare Krishna, we say their names together. Radha’s name comes first, and being the mother, she is more approachable. It is only through Her that we may receive Krishna’s blessing.
This wall hanging sculpture was made from cutting and welding sheet metal steel as well as pieces of pipe for the flute and bars for the lotus. The metal was then coated with copper and treated with a patina, creating the yellow oxidized coloring. For her 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.
