Her iconography bears the hallmarks of the Indo-Nepalese devotional-visual arts. The ornate, multi-spired crown. The stems topped with fresh blooms that flank Her tall, slender form. A silken dhoti that clothes Her from the navel downwards, leaving the fertile torso of the Divine Mother exposed for the nourishment of Her devotees. Her signature shringar - long necklaces streaming down Her torso - is completed by the kundalas in Her ears and the composure of samadhi on Her countenance.
The pedestal, despite being a traditional lotus-bed one, is the most interesting aspect of this sculpture. Like Her it is tall, the sculptor having given it a stature taller than usual. It is close-shaped, imitative of the lissome silhouette of the Yogini. This sculpture comes in two different finishes, each colour palette symbolising a different temperament of the devotee in whose altar She is destined to stand.
