Sculptures representing celestial females, who are generally known as apsaras, were used prolifically by Indian artists in medieval times to decorate the external walls of temples. Although meant to depict divine rather than human creatures, they always look eminently desirable. Such abundantly endowed females are generally regarded as goddesses of fertility and are often shown in association with trees.

Here, the woman supports her ample form against the trunk of a tree and the ripe juicy fruits dangling from the branches above emphasize her own curvaceousness. She dances voluptuously with her hip thrust prominently to the right, and the delectable breasts seem to jiggle in consonance with her movement. One leg is placed firmly on the base and the other is raised in a gesture of joyous abandon. Despite the opulence of her form, she appears as a vigorous dancer and it is obvious that the sculptor is well acquainted with the dancer's repertoire.

She is seemingly clad only in jewelry and her ornaments include heavy anklets, many bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Around her abundant abdomen is a sumptuously bejewelled waistband. She has a sharp nose and winged eyebrows. Inspite of the unrestrained sensuality oozing out of her physical frame, her face has an inward looking almost spiritual expression. This alluring damsel of impressive proportions is in fact a picture of controlled energy and the fact that she is dancing on a lotus pedestal grants this composition, celebrating the joyous dance of life, a sacred status.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
