This exceptionally beautiful statue represents an as much beautiful maiden endowed with unearthly beauty, perhaps an Apsara – celestial nymph, from the court of Indra, the king of gods, Menaka, Urvasi, Purvachitti or any, a courtesan from a medieval court, or a ‘Devadasi’ : servant of gods, in a temple, certainly not a princess or elite, playing on her ‘vina’ – stringed musical instrument, for the delight of gods, or men, not ‘swanta-sukhay’ – for her own delight. Playing on a relatively heavier instrument like ‘vina’ in standing position is not a ‘swanta-sukhay’ mode or a princess’s or elite’s way. Her mode, as also the stoical bearing on her face, strongly suggest that she is performing for others, though the divine melody that her ‘vina’ is emitting is capable of enchanting the entire ambience and, its part, it also effects her.

Cast in fine brass the statue is the model of the supreme feminine beauty. A tall figure, every part conceived with standards of divine anatomy and iconography in mind : broader hips, subdued belly with further recessed navel, sensuously modeled breasts protruding farther than the face-level, long arms with fine long fingers, shoulders as wide as the breadth the hips, elegantly cast neck with mild folds, round face and broad forehead, the statue represents a divine form. This tempting anatomy apart, her face has been as much sensuously conceived. Her eyes, large and mesmeric, contained within the partially slanting eyelids, and elegantly trimmed eyebrows, reveal life in them, something not seen in sculptures, cast or chiseled, old or contemporary. Mildly inflated glowing cheeks, well aligned protruding chin, and sharp pointed nose create in between them a subdued space that the nymph’s beautifully shaped sensuously tempting lips occupy.

The image of the nymph has been installed on a high three-tiered lotus pedestal. Its base is hexagonal while the rest two tiers are circular. The base consists of three hexagonal mouldings, that on the bottom, a plain one, above it a fluted and elegantly chamfered one, and on the top of this base-structure is a thin plain moulding. The middle consists of a beautifully turned circular moulding with good height on which rises a large inverted lotus which houses in its centre an elevated circular platform which installs the image. Every part of the image has been lavishly adorned with a wide range of ornaments : exquisitely dressed and ornamented hair, distinctly designed ear-ornaments, a magnificent variety of necklaces on breasts, ornaments for shoulders, exclusively designed arms-bands, bangles, rings, laces for adorning belly, exquisite girdles, ornaments for foot and laces of pearls used for lining the ‘antariya’. A beautifully pleated and richly adorned ‘antariya’ and a sensuously conceived ‘stana-pata’ – breasts-band, apexes conceived with floral motifs emphasizing the breasts’ swelling, comprise the figure’s ensemble.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi

I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA

Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
