Antique Indian Bronze Statue
Dancing Dakini
Devi Goddess
Origin: India. Circa: 19th- early 20th century
H 5 in.(12.5cm), W 5.5 in.(14cm), D 3 in.(7.5cm)
Condition: minor chips, o.a. good

The nakedness of the Dakini is not meant to promote women as sexual objects, but as to represent primordial, non-dual awareness; stripped of all obscuration and defilement. Dakini are physical manifestations of shakti, a dancing energy, and are seen as a kind of muse for spiritual practice. She poses with her arms rising elegantly away from her torso; her agile hands set in virtaka, a mudra of reasoning, argumentation and explanation of the teachings. Etched on her left hand palm is the symbol of a vajra, in a flowery style, matching her diamond shaped earrings. Her face is waiting, basking in the joy of movement. The bronze sports a warm patina, and with the exception of a few oxidized along the backside, the piece is in excellent condition.
