The amorous couple, Radha-Krishna, standing on discrete plinths. It is a twin-murti composition in brass. Lord Krishna in the tribhanga stance (the body jutting out laterally at three different junctures, namely the shoulders, the hips, and the ankle) plays on His flute, while His Radha raises a hand in blessing over devotees.
The finish is a deep, lustrous gold, characteristic of the pure brass medium. The Lord and His Vrindavan ladylove bear a composure of omnibenevolence and omniscience. His is a more ornate crown with peacock plumage at the zenith, while Hers is more in keeping with the shape of Her feminine skull.
Krishna is in a dhoti and angavastram, while Radha is also wearing a dhoti with layers upon layers of jewels on Her full-figured torso. Note the sheer level of detail introduced into the crowns and dhoties of each deity. The plinths they stand on are identical - multi-tiered, engraved with two circular rows of lotus petals of a different proportion each.
