Antique Krishna Dancing On Serpent Kaliya handcrafted brass idol
This beautifully brass statue, The Dance of Victory Krishna is depicted on Kalia, the giant snake that terrorized the people of Gokul.
A multi-headed serpent called Kalia along with his hundred wives had taken refuse in Yamuna river near Vrindavan, the village where Krishna grew up as a child. Its venom had caused havoc killing all the cattle that used to go to the river to drink water, all the birds that flew over it and all trees that were there on the bank of the river. Kalia had a bloated ego because of the powers that he possessed.
In the meanwhile inside river Yamuna Krishna has a small encounter with Kalia whereby Kalia tries to display his powers against Krishna. But Krishna in a very playful way climbs on top of the hood of the great serpent as the serpent rises above water. The villagers of Vrindavan watch in awe as the great serpent emerges out of water with its hood raised and Krishna dancing on top of it. Kalia bleeds heavily and his venom also starts to come out as he keeps becoming weaker.
The wives of Kalia surface and ask Krishna for forgiveness. Finally Kaliaâ€™s ego too is broken and he asks for forgiveness. Then Krishna directs him to go to a certain place and live harmoniously there.
