The metal-ware industry specializes in decorative items and panels of deities; the motifs often taken from temple friezes.
This image of goddess Parvati stands on a lotus pedestal resting on a square base. She is shown as a tall, sleek female standing in the tribhanga (thrice-bent) posture. She wears a tall conical crown; simple and elegant jewelry; and an intricately designed waist belt holding the multi-fold saree in place. Close incisions make for the numerous folds and lend more grace to the already graceful figure. The dress reaches above the ankles, revealing the slightly raised left foot. A yagnopavita-like sacred thread runs over her left shoulder, down to the right side of the waist. Considering the voluptuous curves of the body and the round-ness of the limbs, the face is rather angular with sharp features doe-like eyes, straight, pointed nose, and thin lips spread in a smile.
The figure is a picture of elegance and grace.
