This is a uniquely sculpted brass piece of Goddess Parvati dancing in her own rhythm and soulfulness. This statue was crafted in Aligarh and stone work of reconstituted stones was done in Patan (a city in Nepal), famous for its handicrafts. It is built with the glimpses of Nepal’s tradition of Buddhism of long earlobes for effective listening skills and two curved lines on the neck for her deep and echoing voice.
Parvati is the Hindu goddess of love, fertility, beauty, marriage, devotion and also the consort of Shiva; mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya. She is the cause of a bond that connects all beings and a means of their spiritual release. She represents the true feminine aspect and is the source of all power in this universe and Lord Shiva gets his powers from her.
This sculpture stands on a double lotus, dancing with left leg touching the base and right leg held high and bent inwards; left hand stretched out gracefully and right hand angled up. She wears beautiful blue attire, decorated with red contrasting lines and borders and circular multicolored stones. Heavy work on the neck increases the beauteous essence of her outfit; hair matted up formed like a flower, tied with a band and peacock feather symbolic of purity and beauty glorifies at the top. She wears big kundals in her ears resting on her shoulders. Closed eyes represent her deep concentration in the powerful, yet graceful dance.
