Perch Parrot With Richly Detailed Plumage

The temples of the South are known for their magnificence. They are usually the tallest structures in their respective vicinity, richly carved with images that capture the imagination of the devoted. A whole genre of contemporary sculptural art in India is devoted to replicating the images that grace the exterior of these ancient temples. These images surround the central deity of the temple in question and could be found anywhere from just outside the garbhagrha (housing the central deity) to the spire of the temple itself.

The visual of pastel-coloured wood is a very Southern thing in Indian art. Zoom in on the skilful serrations of the parrot’s richly detailed plumage and the stylised lotus pedestal it is perched on. An example of temple-style architecture, it is probably inspired by a decorative edge of the cornice at some ancient temple. The stance is like it is watching over the devotees that step in and out of the temple of their lord or Devi.

The protrusion of the breast is at a sharp angle to the curve of the neck, adding an impression of the dynamic to this work. Note the gracious silhouette of its wings in motion, the restful state of its tail, and the half-open beak that is indicative of the creature’s level of engagement with the object before it.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
