This Bal Krishna Statue is the god of a pastoral community. The Krishna who emerged from the blending of these figures was ultimately identified with the supreme god Vishnu-Narayana and, hence, considered his avatar. The child Krishna was adored for his mischievous pranks, he also performed many wonders and slew demons. The child Krishna was loved for his playful pranks; he also showed many miracles and slew demons.
As a youth, the cowherd Krishna became famous as a lover, the tone of his flute provoking the gopis (wives and daughters of the cowherds) to leave their homes to dance ecstatically with him in the moonlight. His favorite among them was the beautiful Radha. At length, Krishna and his brother Balarama returned to Mathura to kill the wicked Kamsa.
Afterward, finding the kingdom unsafe, Krishna led the Yadavas to the western coast of Kathiawar and secured his court at Dvaraka (modern Dwarka, Gujarat). He united the princess Rukmini and took other wives as well.
Krishna declined to bear arms in the great war among the Kauravas (sons of Dhritarashtra, the descendant of Kuru) and the Pandavas (sons of Pandu), but he proposed a choice of his private attendance to one side and the loan of his army to the other. The Pandavas chose the former, and Krishna thus served as charioteer for Arjuna, one of the Pandava brothers. On his return to Dvaraka, a brawl broke out one day among the Yadava chiefs in which Krishna’s brother and son were slain. As the god sat in the forest mourning, a huntsman, confusing him for a deer, shot him in his one unprotected spot, the heel, killing him.
Bal Gopal or Laddu Gopal is the baby form of Kanha Ji and He is considered to be the cutest member of the family. Bal Gopal is historically one of the early forms of worship in Krishnaism and an element of the history of Krishna worship in antiquity. This tradition is considered as a part of the number of other traditions that led to amalgamation in a later stage of the historical development and culminate in the worship of Radha Krishna as Svayam Bhagavan.
Bala-Krishna is often depicted as a small child crawling on his hands, and knees or dancing with a piece of butter in his hand. In the Bhagavad Gita, it appears Krishna is teaching a universal monotheistic religion of personal God and reveals himself to be all-God, svayam Bhagavan. The childhood episodes of Krishna’s legend became the focus of the medieval devotional cults that started to develop in a number of movements in medieval India.
The rich variety of legends associated with Krishna’s life led to an abundance of representation in painting and sculpture. The child Krishna (Balakrishna) is depicted crawling on his hands and knees or dancing with joy, a ball of butter held in his hands. The divine lover—the most common representation—is shown playing the flute, surrounded by adoring gopis. In 17th- and 18th-century Rajasthani and Pahari painting, Krishna is characteristically depicted with blue-black skin, wearing a yellow dhoti (loincloth) and a crown of peacock feathers.
