One of the most widely revered and most popular of all Indian divinities is Krishna the divine cow herder, worshipped as the eighth incarnation of Vishnu stands beneath the shade of a tree playing his flute with his cow grazing besides him. Krishna stands with his right leg over his left in his signature pose of 'Tribhangi'. The statue is carved from the 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.
