Chaturbhuj Krishna-A true modern masterpiece of Hindu Art

Every piece has a story to tell. The Bombay Store has always been inspired by things which are exclusive and especially Indian.3333 with text

A Hindu household is said to be incomplete without an idol of Lord Krishna. According to Hindu Mythology, Lord Krishna is one of the most revered and most popular of all Indian divinities. He is worshipped as the eighth incarnation (avatar) of Lord Vishnu.

Krishna is captured in his classic pose of Chaturbhuj (Krishna with 4 hands) playing the flute. Standing gracefully on a Lotus (Kamal) his melodies enchant the cows and Gopis of Gokul. This craftsmanship creates a musical aura, with all the Gopis playing instruments like Sitar, Drum, and Tutari around Krishna. On top, Lord Murugan (Kartikeya Bhagwan) is sculpted on a peacock symbolizing good luck. The craftsman has taken peacock as the theme of the creation-with many elements sculpted in its feathers. The dominant motifs in this art include the peacock feathers, cows , Lord Vishnu, Lord Hanuman, Rats and Musicians having been carved with a traditional touch showcasing the utmost talents by the Indian artists.

This masterpiece is chiseled and carved on Teak Wood and cladded partially with German silver. This intricate and elaborate process requires great precision and skill.

We believe this grand statue will create an aura of divinity and serenity anywhere it’s placed. Beautify any space be it a bungalow, office area or building entrance with this meticulously carved Krishna idol. This visually appealing idol in the antique finish is worth a visit. This figurine has a silver charm can enchant the eyes of the beholder and you wouldn’t want to miss it. This Krishna idol will become your favorite in no time.

Do visit us and marvel at this true modern masterpiece of Indian Handicraft at The Bombay Store (PM Road).
