Hinduism is the de facto religion of Bali and its surrounding islands. It’s there in the artwork, the temples, the culture, and in the little minutiae of everyday life: the greetings, the rituals, and the little tokens of offerings.
And here we have a major symbol of that religion, a stone and cement sculpture of the Hindu deity Krishna – also considered the complete incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Krishna is one of the more popular and widely revered of all deities, and this strong piece is finished off with a nice patina, adding a heavenly sheen to a major figure.
Whether as a showroom piece or a major decorative objet, this head of Krishna deserves reverence and a right spot in that temple of your home.
