In Hindu philosophy, the whole existence is visualised as a play of Purush and Prakriti. While
Purusha represents the masculine and dormant nature of existence, which is the source of all
creation, Prakriti is the divine play of energy around it that manifests itself in various forms.
Shiva along with her consort Parvati, also known as Devi Uma, are the personification of
Purusha and Prakriti in mortal forms. Just as existence cannot exist without these two dualities,
Shiva is also incomplete without her consort, Devi Uma. As for her devotees, she is the most
divine manifestation of Shakti (feminine energy) and godliness.
This beautiful bronze statue resembles the depiction of the goddess as found in ancient
artworks. The brilliant craftsmen of Swamimalai have done an exemplary work by portraying the
goddess as an ancient deity yet full of fresh youthfulness and vigour. The Devi is standing on an
upturned lotus pedestal with slight bends across her body. She is depicted as a simple and
beautiful woman with one of her hands in the posture of holding a flower while the other hand
rests gracefully on her side. She is clad in a dhoti and adorned with elegant pieces of jewelry.
The face of the Devi gives the vibes of divine calmness and serenity.
On the outside, the Devi might appear like a silent and graceful woman, but inside, she is
holding the most exuberant manifestation of energy. This enchanting statue is the ultimate
portrayal of Devi Uma in her vibrant glory and unmatched dignity.
