Radha Krishna, Trivandrum (now Thiruvananthapuram) 
Late 19th to early 20th century 

In response to growing European influence in India, Mysore and Trivandrum became primary centres of the ivory carving industry. The British attempt to encourage naturalism, or the realistic portrayal of nature, is evident in the dancing figure of Radha and Krishna.

The chief centres for the production of ivory articles in the Indian subcontinent were Delhi in north India, Murshidabad in West Bengal, Mysore in South India and Moulmein in Burma.
