Parvati
South India
14th/15th Century
Copper Alloy
Height: 12 ½

The Goddess has a lovely molded face and wears a tiered crown secured behind with a siraschakra. She is seated in lalitasana with her right hand in the katakahasta murda. The left hand is stretched alongside and bears the weight of her body. The elegant and graceful proportions of this sculpture with its shoulders, rounded breasts, slender waist and gently sloping hips give Parvati a regal bearing. She wears a finely incised floral patterned dhoti.
