According to Indian mythology, dancing is a divine activity, which the gods love to watch or participate in. Entertaining the gods with dance and music is an integral part of temple ritual and worship.

This is a figure of a dakini - a celestial dancing female who is supposed to help the adept to reach his goal via the tantrika path. This beautiful figure made in brass, has intricate work on jewellery, attire, hair etc. This tall, lithe figure is of slender built. She wears a hip hugging skirt that flare as it reaches up to her knees. Her long torso is bare. Like most celestial figures, she wears an unstitched fold of cloth to cover the breasts, but barely so. Heavy ornaments, including a girdle, armbands, necklaces and long, hanging earrings adorn the figure. The figure demonstrates characteristics of the Mauryan period. Here, she is caught in the movement of dance, one hand raised and the other bent in synchrony with the curve of the hip. One of her legs balances her on the pedestal and the other is lifted. No sculptor could have captured the rhythm and movements graphically without being familiar with the art of dancing.

The dancer has an elaborate hairstyle and between the head and the hair do is a delicate tiara. The tribhanga position that she stands in is the most graceful position. The placing of her right hand is balanced compositionally by her odhini that starts from the skirt and twirls around her left hand.

The pedestal matches up to the beauty of the figure. The inverted lotus has a flat platform for the dancer. That something as hard as metal can be moulded into a delicate item is itself a feat.

Testimonials

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
