This sculpture is a complete mini temple in itself, sculpted with three kinds of materials of brass, copper and wood. Laddu Gopala who sits on the small swing is made in fine copper. Laddu Gopala is the baby form of Lord Krishna and for those who worship this deity, he is like a family member to them. This crawling posture of Bala Gopala holds a significant story; when Raghunandan (son of Kumbandasa; worshipper of Krishna) offered laddu bhog to the deity, he always appeared in the form of a baby to eat it and this scene was once witnessed by Kumbandasa and he immediately fell on his feet, hence Krishna froze in this pose with one laddu in hand and one in mouth, thereby calling him Laddu Gopala.
The dark chocolate colored slabs in this sculpture are made of wood while the complementing yellow gold patterns of flowers and birds on the rectangular pedestal and beautiful flowers on the drawer are made of brass. The stylized arch is sculpted in charming ethnic patterns with the two peacocks standing on either side of the slant accompanied by layers of coils forming a traditional designed boundary to the arch. The ghunghroos hung on the top and at the base along with the temple bell at the top generate an aura of spirituality and beauty to it.
The small brass chain attached to Laddu Gopala’s swing allows it to move to and fro; the drawer helps you keep Laddu Gopala’s dresses and various other temple accessories. This swing temple of Laddu Gopala is a full-fledged set to worship this baby deity.
