A LARGE AND IMPORTANT BRONZE FIGURE OF THE DANCING KRISHNA
SOUTH INDIA, VIJAYANAGARA PERIOD, 16TH CENTURY
A LARGE AND IMPORTANT BRONZE FIGURE OF THE DANCING KRISHNA SOUTH INDIA, VIJAYANAGARA PERIOD, 16TH CENTURY In this impressive sculpture, Krishna is shown as a young man in his iconic dancing pose. His strong elongated torso balances over powerful muscular legs that show no trace of his babyhood chubbiness, and his arms are proportionate with his slender body. He stands on a lotus over a tiered plinth, the upper step incised with three bands of diamond, circular and foliate patterns, respectively. It has a rich red-brown patina overall. This figure's large almond eyes, dangling earrings, and elaborate topknot signify spiritual advancement as well as a kind of playful seductiveness. The child is shown here dancing gracefully with his leg raised in diagonal balance with his outstretched arm. 27 in. (68.5 cms.) high
