A skillfully carved sculpture of a beautiful young lady applying sindoor, vermillion, on her forehead and looking at her beautiful self in a hand mirror. An exceptional work of art inspired by the world's best-known sculptures from Khajuraho, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famously known for sculptures of beautiful traditional Indian women.

This brass sculpture of an Indian woman applying the sindoor vermilion on her hair-parting while looking into a mirror, considered the highest kind of virtue ascribed to a woman, represents a tradition of auspiciousness said to have travelled through more than 5,000 years of Hindu culture. It is believed to be a visible expression of the woman's desire for her husband's prosperity and longevity. The sindoor vermilion being applied is also considered to be the symbol of the female energy of the mother, Parvati, and Sati.

The simple gesture expressed in this sculpture reaches a higher level of spirituality. The area where sindoor vermilion is applied, between the eyebrows, called the Ajna Chakra, is considered to be the entry and exit point of the jivaatma (soul) as per Sanatan Hindu Dharma. Ajana Chakra, considered to be the place of the "third eye," is the site where one finally loses Ahamkara (ego, sense of individuality, or selfishness) when one achieves self-righteousness after reaching a higher level of spirituality. This iconic depiction of a beautiful Indian woman represents an image that has been associated with auspiciousness for centuries.
