Perhaps one of the most beautiful love stories in Hinduism, Radha and Krishna is the ultimate symbol of love. This is why people practicing Hinduism typically give a Radha Krishna statue to a couple during their wedding anniversary. Epics and myths say that Lord Vishnu is Krishna while Goddess Lakshmi is Radha. Theirs is basically a tale of love between a goddess and a god, but in human form. The name Radha Krishna means “cannot be broken into two.” The love of Radha Krishna was so strong that they became one.

You can find a wide range of Radha Krishna statues made from different materials. Usually made of metal, they can be covered in precious stones such as corals and turquoise. Stone and wood are also other popular materials for making Radha Krishna statues. If you are going to give Radha Krishna statues for the wedding anniversary of a friend, find one that is appropriate for the year. For example, the 5th year together as a couple is a wood anniversary, so why not give them a wooden Radha Krishna statue? 

You don’t have to go to India to find an excellent Radha Krishna statue. In fact, you don’t even need to leave your home or office. You can find online Indian craft and specialty stores offering religious statues. Shop anytime and anywhere, and see a wide selection in just a few clicks.

Most statues of the love couple depict Lord Krishna playing the flute while Radha is standing and has one palm risen up. A sitting version of the couple is also available and has a more romantic pose. You can find the couple surrounded or incorporated with spirit animals, such as cobras, peacocks, and cows. Make sure to keep in mind the preference or style of the couple you are gifting when choosing a Radha Krishna statue.
