This well endowed maiden, playing upon a single-stringed instrument, is one of a poor tribe wandering around marketing their creative output (in this case wooden toys). At least this is what the artist would have us believe. There are however many pointers which indicate that the artist has executed a carefully thought out deception and that reality differs from the depiction. Look, for example, at her fair skin. It is highly improbable for any tribal woman to be blessed with such a glowing form.

Secondly, consider her attire. Ending somewhere midway between her sturdy thighs, her tight lower garment is held together below her midriff by a bejeweled waist band. The amount of jewelry ornamenting her is sumptuous to say the least, so much so that it seems that no part of her body is left undecorated. Can this be the wardrobe of an impoverished woman forced to leave her home and saunter around peddling her wares? This perhaps is the wretched woman's fantasy - to be dressed in a rich manner befitting a princess. Or, it is a classic case of art deceiving true life and represents a woman accustomed to move in the higher circles of life, having donned the circumstances of a less fortunate woman, setting out to make her own style statement.

But whatever may have been the artist's motivation, there is no denying that he has created a marvelous image imbued with charm and attraction. Her already curvaceous form is much enriched by the twin breasts, which push her sensuous red bodice to extreme. Indeed, it seems possible that her ample bosom may spill out any moment from its restraining garment. The muscular upper limbs seem to be meant to embrace a beloved, as does a fresh garland the neck of a deity. A juicy red look gives the lips an inviting flavor. The fact that they are tightly sealed however indicates that not all are welcome to partake their nectar but rather only the one chosen by her.

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
