Please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada.
Above is a photo of Sri Gopal with His new eyes, styled according to Sri Kavi Karnapura's transcendental vision:
Sri Krsna-karnamrta, 45
kale kada karunikah kisorah
lilayitabhyam—playful; rasa—with mellows, with feelings of love;
sitalabhyam—cooling, soothing; nila—blue (at the irises); arunabhyam—reddish
(at the corners); nayana—eyes; ambujabhyam—lotus; alokayed—look upon;
adbhuta—wonderful; vibhramabhyam—rolling, moving, dancing; kale-the time;
kada-when; karunikah-kind, merciful; kisorah-adolescent (Krsna).
When will the time come when that merciful boy Krsna will look upon me with His playful lotus eyes, which are soothing and cooling with loving emotion, reddish at the corners and dark bluish at the irises, and wonderfully rolling and dancing?
My special gratitude to Radha Raman Prabhu of New Delhi who helped getting the eyes made.

This is a picture of Sri Gopal salagrama sila, which I am fortunate to worship (November 2004).
He has markings of a footprint, cow's hoofprint (a bigger one), calf's
hoofprint (a smaller one), a "fluteprint" and a "stickprint". :)
