Early 19th century Indian bronze votive sculpture of Radha beautifully flexing her body, her arms wide spread and hair arranged in a bun. Radha is a Hindu goddess and a chief consort of the god Krishna and is worshiped as the goddess of love, tenderness, compassion and devotion. She is the avatar of Lakshmi and is also described as the chief of gopis (milkmaids), who are entranced by Krishna playing flute. Krishna’s flute is the call of the divine and Radha's passionate response to this call is an expression of unconditional love for and surrender to God. Wonderful casting and detailing, devotional painting on the surface, beautiful patina, very pleasant feel of age to the sculpture. Height 5 3/4 inches.
