The saga of Radha and her Krishna is on the mind of every Indian and every lover worldwide. Krishna, the avatar of Lord Vishnu, is the most celebrated and most talked among all the Hindu gods. He is an epitome of love and naughtiness. Krishna is the small, chirpy, naughty kid who is said to hail from the town of Mathura. Gokul and Vrindavan are the places where he grew up, and are still considered to be pious in the Hindu Mythology. He was notorious forhis love for butter and gopis (milkmaids), but nothing can ever be compared with his love for his childhood friend Radha. A Hindu household is nearly incomplete without an idol of the two, where Krishna is generally shown playing the flute and Radha is seen mesmerized by the beautiful melody.
Making these idols requires a great deal of precision and hard work. Each one of them is unique in itself and requires perfect craftsmanship and perseverance. The wood carvings require the artisan to select a fine quality wood. This wood is approximately of the same width and length as the final product. What is astounding, is the fact that these idols range from being thumb sized to that of a storey or even more, but from each one of them emanates the Radha-Krishna love which delights their followers with their beauty of the intricacies that a fellow human being like them remembered while he carved them.
