Krishna knew that Dharma would function on only one leg in the Kaliyuga, but even He wouldn't have thought that He'd be relegated to a museum so early! Especially when more deserving people like George W Bush are still loose.

One of the oldest and most prestigious museums, the Indian Museum of Kolkata, is organizing a 9-day sculpture exhibition focusing on several facets of Lord Krishna as captured by the sculptors through centuries.

The exhibits range in date from the 7th century to the 20th century, hail from different parts of India, and have been collected by the Indian Museum over a century from 1886.

The sculptures in stone, terracotta, wood, metal, ivory, porcelain and clay, and the colorful textiles and miniatures paintings represent various aspects of Krishna as Balagopala, Venugopala and Nandagopala, and show the different exploits of his life like the killing of Kamsasura and the lifting of the mountain Govardhan.

Some of these marvelously chiseled idols include Krishna lifting the Govardhana (7th century - Mathura), Radha and Krishna under the Kadama tree (12th century - Berhampore), the Dancing Gopala (14th century - South India), Krishna with the gopikas (15th century - Uttar Pradesh), Venugopala (18th century - Kumbhakonam) and Krishna dancing with the gopikas (19th century - Deccani).
