The god Krishna -one of the most worshipped of Indian pantheon- is represented playing his flute ended by an elephant head. This harmonious sound was irresistible for the gopis, the young shepherdesses who were in love with him.
Krishna's hands are raised parallel to his face in order to handle the instrument. His left leg only holds the weight of the body. The right one crosses the other as in performing a dance step. This posture is called tribhanga.
The statue is in perfect condition. Original wood stand.
17,5 x 7,5 x 5,5 cm 22 x 8,2 with stand.
Anglo-Indian ivory, late 19th century.
