The monumentality and deep carving of this piece make it one of the finest examples of the ornate style that developed during the Hoysala Dynasty (early 12th to mid-14th century). Krishna spent his early life fluting in the bucolic groves at Brindavan while tending to the animals and the young ladies. Adorned with gems and jewels, he is accompanied by his wives, other musicians, and admiring sages.
