Brilliantly modeled with rhythm infused into every part of the figure, in the bent legs, tilted hips, curved belly, artistically turned face, gesticulated arms, sensuously moved breasts and in its entire demeanour – every twist and gesture, the brass-cast, representing a youthful maiden with the parrot, is a magnificent piece of art, secular, aesthetic and timeless. The parrot, romantically couched on her left arm with its beak close to her breasts, seems to be a bit confused as to whether what it has before it are some magic mounds emerged on its mistress’s body, or a pair of its most loved fruit, pomegranates – same modeling, gold-like lustre, transparence and toughness, disabling it from determining if it should strike them for their juicy seeds or just look at them and enjoy their beauty. Unaware of the parrot’s evil mind and the injurious designs that it has the young maiden continues with her reveries and is engaged with thoughts of him who sojourns in far off lands.

Essentially a piece of art for aesthetic delight it is capable of sublimating by its sheer beauty the minds as also any space, a sitting chamber, commercial or domestic, or a public place appropriate to its size, a corridor in a picture hall, hospital, hotel, mall or departmental store, or a gallery in a museum. The statue inherits this power to aesthetically transform a venue from the long and great tradition of Indian aesthetics that set and refined over long centuries the standard norms of iconography and anatomy for modeling the figure of a youthful maiden, particularly a ‘nayika’, a heroine in love, under the Nayika-bheda cult. It also added subordinate imagery for substantiating some aspects of beauty or for revealing various emotions or emotional situations, parrot being one of them.

Indian aesthetics have used parrot-imagery more often, literature, sometimes even on par with human characters of a tale. In Indian way of life parrots and pigeons are since ages the most dependable means of communication, though while a pigeon was seen as acting like a postman couriering written material – a love letter or a secret note, a parrot was always a faithful messenger carrying the words, sometimes its own description, of a loving one, a ‘nayika’ or ‘nayaka’, to another. The ‘nayika’ telling her parrot what it has to convey to her love has been a favourite theme of a number of medieval statues and paintings. The parrot imagery has been used equally effectively for portraying a nayika’s physical beauty, especially her breasts, the most effective component of a woman’s beauty. A parrot titillating the nipple of her breast, as represents a sculpture at Khajuraho’s Parshvanatha temple, or greedily looking at them, as in this brass-cast, more effectively portrays her breasts’ modeling, ripened state, toughness, a ripe mango or pomegranate like juicy contents, gold-like skin-colour, lustre, transparence and overall beauty than would do any statement, however powerful.

This brass-statue, anodized in deep copper tint, has been moulded and cast pursuing these standards of classical anatomy and iconography. Apart a highly balanced anatomy : rounded face to which the style of hair-dressing further contributes, well aligned neck with broad shoulders tilted affording rhythmic curve to the entire figure, elongated slender arms with fine long fingers, well developed breasts crowned with artistically cast nipples, subdued belly, voluminous hips and legs in three-curved posture, and iconography with large thoughtful eyes, sharp well defined nose and small cute lips, the figure is rare in emotional bearing. Not only the demeanour of her face even the posture of her hands suggest that she is lost in thoughts of someone who is away and she is missing him.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of ancient Indian literature. Dr Daljeet is the chief curator of the Visual Arts Gallery at the National Museum of India, New Delhi. They have both collaborated on numerous books on Indian art and culture.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
