Two years after the first padukas, about which you can read here→ more, I continued carving the second set of padukas in black granite.
Padukas are imprints of the feet of a Saint, but this term is also used for the sandals by which a Saint is revered.
In 2014 I made an imprint in clay of the feet of Swami Gopala Krishna. I originally wanted to copy these footprints exactly in a rough chunk of granite, so it looked as if he had been standing there, but at his request, I have depicted it in the traditional manner: embossed on the surrounding stone, with on the feet the signs of an incarnation of Vishnu: the lotus, the disc (chakra) and the conch (shankh). All around a motif cut with lotus leaves was carved.
This stone will be placed in a temple and be used for devotional purposes.
