Which is supposed to symbolize the divine love of Radha and Krishna. He is also shown in the form of Vishwaroop in the Kurukshetra war in which he has many faces and all the people are going in his face. He is also shown with his friend Sudama which is a symbol of friendship.

Guidelines for Krishna icons and sculptures in architecture are described in medieval age Hindu temple arts such as the Vaikhanasa Agama, Vishnu Dharmatottara Purana, Brihat Samhita and Agni Purana.

Similarly, the early Tamil texts of the medieval era also include sculptures of Krishna and Rukmini. Many sculptures made as per these guidelines are in the collection of Government Museum, Chennai.
