Designer Krishna



Indian deity in porcelain avatar

A SPECIAL edition of Krishnas in porcelain have been added to the limited edition idols collection of Indian gods and goddesses available at d'Mart Exclusif. Only 251 available pieces of Muralidhar, the 31-inch Krishna designed and conceptualised in India, are available

From Germany

Made by Ormulu in Germany, the handcrafted porcelain Krishnas have intricate brass detailing. The German brand earned a name for itself globally by creating expert replicas of pieces dating back to 18th and 19th Century France and Russia.

But this is the first time that the porcelain masters have worked on a figurine — their traditional work being restricted to pieces such as urns and vases. Ormulu made an exception to create Muralidhar, which is being touted as the first porcelain Krishna and is embellished with detailed filigree brass work.

Muralidhar is exclusively available at d'Mart Exclusif's flagship boutique in New Delhi but is also retailed at some franchisees across the world.

D'Mart Exclusif has a dedicated line of a limited edition collection of Indian idols crafted by master craftsmen from some of the most sought after brands in the world including silversmiths Linea Argenti from Italy and Ormulu from Germany.

In Bangalore, Muralidhar can be purchased at E-Studio, 1132, 1st Floor, HAL 2nd Stage, 100 foot road, Indiranagar, Bangalore 560038. Phone: 51154791/2
