Lord Krishna is as handsome as Lord Gopala, His Baala-Roopa (infant form), is adorable. Since His arrival in Vrindavan from Mathura, He had won the hearts of the local mothers and maidens alike. The murti that you see on this page captures Him in the signature tribhanga stance and, as such, is a visual narrative that explains the amorous aspect of His leela (divine conduct).
