Devi Andal, The Only Female Alvar

Devi Andal, The Only Female Alvar

Devi Andal, The Only Female Alvar

She is a Devi that is one-of-a-kind. Beauteous, and the epitome of bhakti in Her devotion to Vishnuavatara Lord Krishna. She is Devi Andal, the only female of the twelve Alvars. The Alvars are a distinguished group of poet-saints of the Tamil world who were Srivaishnava bhaktas of the highest order. Devi Andal, found by Her parents at the base of the sacred tulasi (basil) plant, grew up a bhakta and was widely believed to be the Devi Mahalakshmi Herself.

The Devi Andal iconography is a recurring image in the work of contemporary Southern artisans. In Her bhakti to Vishnuavatara, She has taken after the roopa (form) of Devi Vishnupriya Herself. Tall and slender, well-endowed curves the sign of fecundity and nourishment. The language of Her body is one of incredible grace and poetry. The way it all has been captured in the medium of bronze is a hallmark of the artisan’s skill and shraddha.

The parrot is integral to the iconography of Devi Andal. It is perched on Her left hand, its wings shut around its body as it looks lovingly up at Her handsome moon-like face. Her luscious hair is gathered in a tall bun on top of Her head, secured in place by a crown and a band of lotus petals at the roots. Finally, the kundalas in Her ears are the most signature aspect of Her shringar.
