Description Among all the women of Krishna’s hometown of Brindavan, Radha is his most beloved. In a companion sculpture to this Radha (F.153), Krishna plays his flute, charming all who hear his music. Radha dances to the tune, gracefully lifting her arm. When the two sculptures were enshrined and worshiped together, they would have been adorned in clothing and jewelry.
