With a tapered waist and hands poised with utter grace, the idol of Devi Uma, the epitome of the feminine energy of Shakti, sits beautifully on a pedestal. Often known by her more popular name Parvati, she is the Goddess who rules over all three realms of existence (triloka). Her hair is piled atop her head in a jatamukuta (crown made of hair), framed by the bejewelled crown. Her divine feet do not touch the ground, remaining unsullied by the world's sins.
When Lord Shiva's first wife Sati had immolated herself for the insults directed towards her husband, he had gone into deep meditation to help with his grief. However, Sati reincarnated into the truly magnificent form of Uma, who brought him out from his meditation and into a blessed reunion of the divine couple. She was born in the mountains of the Himalayas, referred to as the daughter of the mountains. She goes on to take multiple forms where she blesses her devotees and slays demons. Crafted in bronze by using the lost wax art form via deft hands, Devi Uma here stands in the garb of a true queen, sitting regal and proud. In her alluring form, she is the perfect companion to Lord Shiva.
