mid 1900ís Tamil Nadu temple statue beguiles and entices as the goddess Parvati.
Intricately and beautifully rendered by an able artist. The goddess has a
sensuous youthfulness that permeated into a lifelike bronze. Her
waist is slender and her breasts full. The height and a breadth of her celestial
status is indicated in her magnificent royal headpiece that pushes forth towards
the zenith. Her posture and stance is open almost vulnerable, but imbued in this
openness is the vital power of a great yogini whose has partaken in both the deepest
meditations and the most ecstatic forms of the deep tantras. This exceptional
bronze is in excellent condition.
