Parvati Mata ('mata' is Sanskrit for 'mother') is worshipped in Her many forms. Much has been written about each of the aspects of Her complex personality in the Puranas. As the tapasvini and the daughter of the Himalaya, She is Gauri. As the bride and wife of Mahesvara (Lord Shiva), She is Umalingana or simply Uma. Finally, as the mother of Karttikeya and Ganesha, She is Parvati. It is the divine image of Mata Parvati that has been captured in this superbly detailed watercolour. The gorgeous yogini of a mother is seated on the carpeted floors of Her palace, on a lotus-petal rug with a large bolster behind Her back. She is cradling Her little chaturbhujadhari (four-armed) Ganesha in Her arms, offering to Him His favourite laddoo.
Devi Parvati is of gorgeous svaroopa. She is glowing in the divine silks and pearls that clothe Her, Her composure of countenance one of maternal joyousness. Her son is in a pristine dhoti. Their heads are brought together, their golden crowns touching. A layered halo graces the back of their heads. The baby lovingly holds His mother by the chin, a gesture that fills Her with ecstasy. The composition is framed by an archway characteristic of the interior doorways of Indian palaces, against a background of solid brown-grey. The colour palette of this painting is dominated by earthy neutrals, but the emotion it evokes is of superlative beauty.
