This sculpture of a lady on a high raised multi-layered lotus pedestal entices the viewer by its mesmerized beauty and dignity. She stands in a nritya posture with the left leg crossing the right in an utmost elegance. The way she looks into the handheld mirror clearly embraces her emotions of love, romance and the wish to lure her husband as an enchantress.
The dignity on her face and that loving shyness in her eyes enhances the poised composure of her gesture; veiled in a richly carved full length dhoti having parallels that run along with it and decked up in enormous ethnic jewels that highlight every part of her torso in the most appealing manner. As she gazes at the mirror, she feels more confident of her undisruptive beauty and the way her lover would be awe-struck on just a single glance of her.
When you zoom in to the sculpture you will notice the uniquely styled hairs in a big bun, ornamented with kinds of hair accessories highlighting the lady’s perfection. The sculptor has hinted at his thoughts and imaginations by creating a statue mildly inspired by erotic sculptural art of Khajuraho.
