The holy Mother Goddess in Hinduism, Parvati is the gentle
and nurturing form of the supreme Goddess Adi Parashakti and the consort of the
destroyer of Trinity, Lord Shiva. This brass statue of the Goddess depicts her
as standing in a slight bent posture on a double lotus plinth; carved with
smooth edges and petals chiselled beautifully. The dual shade of gold and brown
complements with the elegant figurine of Goddess Parvati. She is carved here
with a fully blooming lotus in her right hand, hence named as Padmadharini (one
holding a lotus). The body curves and sharp facial expressions indicate the
sculptor’s marvellous skills of perfection.
Zoom in to the image for a clear view of the slender legs of
Parvati veiled by a richly carved ankle length dhoti having horizontal patterns
chiselled in designs of luxury and ethnic patterns. The multiple layered
kamarband is ornated with small and sleek golden colored brochs that contrast
with her gold neck choker and the royal gold hued body. The perfectly fitted
vest that shapes beautifully along the chest and the floral carved sleeves are
indicative of the carver’s precision for his work.
Goddess Parvati is sculpted with the smiling lips, sharp
pointed and sleek nose and a bindi on her forehead reflecting her feminist
aura. The long multiple layered crown that she adorns is inspired by the South
Indian style temple carvings, filled with intricate patterns and precised
carves. Inspite of its amazing and creative carvings, the super glossy texture
catches the attention of the eyes.
The tall, lissome Devi looks straight ahead of Her. Upon Her handsomely carved, wide-set brow sits a tall, tapering crown, the glamour of which bears striking resemblance to the ancient templetops of the South. The kundalas dangling from Her karna touch the ample gold pieces that clasp Her neck, which further makes way for a pair of luscious breasts, a small waist, and full hips. A silken dhoti clings tightly to Her long limbs, held around Her hips with a girdle of gold; the embroidery on the same having been carved with superb skill and attention to detail.
A colour palette of predominant browns, strategically interspersed with a deep gold across the mukhamadala (countenance) and the insides of Her lithe arms; a form that pours forth with fecundity and fitness and youth.
