Haloed Krishna – The Tribhanga Murari – Plays On The Flute In BrassMay 26, 2022 ⚊ 1 Min read ⚊ Views 87 ⚊ NEWS
Krishna is the most popular subject of choice for artistes in India. The predominant deity to be featured in paintings and sculptors, it is because He is to most Hindus the superlative of all Indian deities. He is portrayed as the most handsome of youths, the calmest and wisest of minds to have descended on ihloka (our actual realm of existence), and the most divine of all flutists. The stance that He has adopted in this murti is how His devotees love to picture Him – He is the tribhanga murari, the flutist (murari) whose form is punctuated (bhang) in three (tri) places namely the shoulder.
