Daughter of the mountains, wife of Lord Shiva. The most beauteous of the Hindu devis, of invincible wisdom and strength. She is Devi Parvati, queen of paraloka. The ensemble that you see on this page is a pure brass sculpture of Her bust, mounted on a minimalistic wooden stand. It is a simple quadrilateral number, a deep black colour that serves to shift focus on the intricacy of Her sculpted features and the coppery monotone of the composition.
She is nimnamukhi, the face (‘mukha’) turned subtly downwards (‘nimna’). Her figure is exquisite - slender shoulders, full breasts, and a small waist. Bejewelled necklaces grace Her decolletage, amulets on the visible part of Her arms, and a matching waistband of gold. All these convey Her status as the ruling deity over all of personified Hindu divinity. The smooth finish of the curves and the alluring depth of colour are in keeping with the twin personal appeal of Devi Tara and Devi Parvati.
Her handsome face - note the gently closed eyes - bears a composure of supreme wisdom and equanimity. She is omniscient and compassionate, as nurturing as She is exacting. There are five relatively small, rather unassuming spires on Her crown, which, together with the angle of Her jawline, is a result of Nepalese influences. A towering crown and the statement aureole stemming from the nape of Her neck completes the composition.
