Krishna the eighth incarnation or avatar of Lord Vishnu is famous for playing the flute. The flute he plays is at a very steep downward angle which is decorated with a yali head on the end of it. Carved from Soft Stone of Orissa by artisans whose ancestors have practiced this craft of stone carving for centuries. Hammers and chisels of various sizes and shapes, called the Muna, Patili, Martual, Thuk-Thuki and Nitana are used to bring life these life-like figures from featureless stone. Once engraved, the finishing Is done by scrapping out the extra material using a flat-edged iron tool.
