Minor cast imperfection, very good condition!
naked and sensual Dancing Dakini represents the primordial consciousness in pulsation;
a cosmic force of pure joy stripped of defilement. The Dancing Dakini is lifelike
and radiating in rapturous bliss, her face is divine in features and serene in
expression, body well proportioned and vigorous in movements. As her upper torso
is swaying in an arc, she is dancing with a bell in her raised right arm, with
left hand holding a symbol, and arm extended to counter her right foot in mid
air, striking a perfect balance with her bending left knee, which resulted in
a sinuous and graceful dance rhythm. In spite of a few minor casting faults, the
eloquence of the Divine Feminine remains vivacious in this spirited dancing goddess.
