The apsara has an antique green, verdigris patina color, embedded within a golden prabmahandal arch, the right hand resting on the curved end of the lower right side of the arch, left hand firmly holding an upper left of the arch at her neck level. The left leg is firmly placed on the stand, and her right leg bent left wise in a dancing position characteristic of an apsara.
The prabmahandal in which she is embedded is well adorned all over, with the middle top having a shape of the conch shell, which symbolizes the victorious nature of the apsara.
Apsaras are the female spirit of the clouds and waters, protector of the integrity of vital energies of warriors, and are auspiciously associated with seven fertility symbolism. They dance to the music made by Gandharvas, and their dance is said to be a tool of communication with the deities.
