Antique Indian Bronze Devata
Playing Cymbal Instrument
Tamilnadu, circa: 17th-18th century
H 18in.(46cm.), W 6.5 in.(16.5cm.), D 5in.(12.5cm.)
Condition: excellent preservation


Poised gracefully upon a drop leaf double lotus base, this figure admirably displays the lush sensibility of images of the divine feminine that are characteristic of the period. Compared to earlier figures, the features of her broader face are more defined; the outlines of her slim body more curvilinear. Her breasts have grown in substance, and her hips in rounded contours framing a higher waistline.Though these differences are subtle, the stylistic coherence of this bronze is attributed to the period of the 17-18th century.

Sold to Private Collection

The goddess stands in animated tribhanga posture holding a cymbal in her left hand and an unknown attribute in the other. Her smiling face is pronounce and sublime in expression. There is a divine feminine charm radiates as the eye moves over the piece, the solidity relieved by small openings through the earrings, through thumb and forefinger and between the ankles at the base. A naturally aged satiny chocolate patina covers the metal, adding to the mythical beauty of the work. The Devata is adorned with jeweled necklaces, armbands, bracelets and a girdle from which hang tassled cords. She wears a diaphanous dhoti which is delicately hand chased with stylized floral designs. A rare and important specimen of Hindu art.
