One of the very kitch Hindu God sculptures at the ISKCON (Hare Krishna) Ashram at Kumbh Mela 2013. The purple deity is Krishna in His four-handed (Vishnu) form.

This is Laxmi-Narayana, Krishna in his four-armed form as Lord Vishnu with Laxmi Devi, laying on Ananta Sesha, with Lord Brahma having emerged from the lotus flower from his navel.

Those metal sculptures were mechanically animated, like low-tech animatronics.
