Giveaway: Baby Krishna Statue

I’ve been brainstorming, practicing, and testing out lots of different ideas for my new Etsy store: American Hindu. (I sell craft items that I create for myself, for my own use and enjoyment, but during this difficult financial period, I thought perhaps others would also enjoy the items I make)

One thing I really wanted to do was baby Krishna statues with a hammock swing particularly for Krishna Janmashtami celebrations. So I’ve been working with clay and practicing, but I don’t feel satisfied with how they’re coming out. Instead I decided to stick to what I’m good at and do crochet baby Krishnas rather than clay.

But that means I have these little Krishna idols with no home. I made one that I’ll keep for myself, but I have two more practice clay Krishnas that I didn’t know what to do with.

    Its quite beautiful artifacts you made on store, anyway, i wonder why Krishna is in blue color ? Its actually black color, as black as rainy clouds are. and also, there are standards in explanations of figure of krishna, कस्थुरी तिलकं ललातफलके! वक्षस्थाले कौस्त्भं! नासाग्रे नव मौक्तिकं! करतले वनुं! करे कङ्कणं! खन्तेच मुक्थावली !सर्वाङ्गे हरिचन्दनञ्च काल्यं! and also Statues or artifacts have to Krishna along with Radha,,, both have to be there when grown art makes. baby krishna is fine alone..

      These are only baby Krishna, as you can see. I tried to use a nice dark blue color, as blue is the divine skin color and Krishna can be represented either in black or in deep blue. I think you’ll find there are thousands of representations of Krishna in blue.

      Whose standards are you referencing? I’m curious!

        Blue color is used in past in movies,, or in shows,, as it looks more vibrant than black in visibility,, but actual color is Black.
        Standards for making Krishna paintings, artifacts. it means how Krishna appearance have to be. in Mahabharata, in Bhagavatam, explained clearly how Krishna appearance is. kasthuri Tilak on forehead, on Chest kausthabha mani ( Like diamond stone), On hand flute, On wrist kankanam,, On neck mukthavali.. etc

    Ambaa is right. Krishna, Rama and Vishnu are of BLUE hue not of black tone. surya

    I’ve not seen Krsna in a very long time, but from what i have read, He is blackish like a storm cloud.

    • Ambaa

      He can be represented as either. Probably he was literally a dark skinned man, but blue skin is a way of representing divinity in all forms of artwork. That tradition did not start with photos or film. His name literally means, dark one.
