The folk-style sculpture shows Radha standing in a pronounced triple flexion. The plastic forms of her body are articulated as geometric shapes. Her head is tilted to the left as her right hand is lifted up and her left extended downwards. She is beckoning to her lover, Krishna, who probably formed a companion piece to this sculpture. Her ears and nose are pierced and were possibly adorned with real jewellery.Radha, whose name means ‘prosperity’, was chief among the milkmaids (gopis). She was the favourite consort of the young cowherd Krishna. She is often depicted standing next to him and together they represent love, passion, and devotion. Primarily Hindu deities they were also worshipped by Jains.
