This evocative sandstone female figure wears the traditional Indian dhoti, her neck adorned with a thick necklace, her face framed with long and exquisitely curled and spiral-braided hair. No one could deny the immense artistic and human appeal of this sculpture as we gaze upon her soft almond-shaped eyes, and her sweetly compelling expression. We delight in envisioning how her curvilinear lines must have extended down from her slightly tilted head to posed arms and swaying torso, and finally to her softly sculpted legs. This Indian deity continues to captivate and beckon, her timeless beauty a tribute to the artistic craftsmanship of the period. – (PF.1993)
