Krishna on his throne

Krishna on his throne

Krishna sits on a shell-shaped throne and holds a lotus flower in his right hand, while his left-hand rests on a spherical scepter standing between his folded legs on a flower-shaped leaf in the shell; behind him are two arms that hold seafood. The representation is divided into two horizontal planes, the lower part with the bottom of the shell has a light green background, the upper part with the raised edge of the shell is not colored; Krishna is in blue with a pink-red sash and some small pink-red accents on parts and attributes; the whole is set in a gray frame line.
