Statues of Apsaras inevitably show them as well-endowed women with voluptuous bodies, a symbol of fertility and also aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Often they are modelled to show the theme of ‘love in separation’, expressed through the act of writing a love letter or confiding themselves in their pet parrot or beautifying themselves in a mirror (shringara), while waiting for their lover. Other attractive models include those playing a drum or stringed instrument, dancing, or even plucking a thorn out of her feet.
Here you can buy Indian statues visualizing the ideal woman. Many statues for sale here are modelled on figures from the Khajuraho temple.
