Yogini Plays The Veena

Yogini Plays The Veena

The Indian yogini is a female ascetic. She is one who has transcended and renounced all worldly pursuits, in her singular practice of ashtanga yoga. She desires nothing more than the supreme union of her jivatma with paramatma, which Patanjali has declared in his Yogasutra to be the very purpose of yoga and human life. The yogini is revered in Indian culture because of her superlative devotion, wisdom, and roopa, such as which are attainable only in the course of sustained yogic austerities. It is no wonder then that the portrayal of the yogini in Indian art, of which this one-of-a-kind sculpture is a fine example, is replete with a beauty that is superhuman, a fluidity of form that is to be found in no ordinary mortal.

She stands on an two-tiered inverted lotus pedestal as she strums on her veena. It is said that when a yogini bursts into music, she enchants nature itself. This yogini is clad in a dhoti that is tied beneath her navel and drops to well above her ankles. Layers of traditional Indian shringar clothes her upper body as well as her feet. She has a gorgeous silhouette, to which the stringed instrument she holds is a fine complement. Her full face is framed by kundalas and a crown that rests delicately on her head, beneath which is gathered all her hair. The glow on her skin, which is characteristic of yoginis, and the general dynamicism of the composition are proof of the sculptor's superb skill.
