The beauteous apsara stands under a shoot that curves barely above the bun on her head. The organic impressions on the same have been carved with considerable skill and attention to detail. An adorable parrot is perched on her delicate wrist, which she feeds with utmost care from a hand-carved bowl. She is standing with all the fluidity and grace of her lissome being, as she looks over the little head bobbing up and down over the bowl. The beauty of the apsara is not only in form and face and figure, but in the being of her body and its language. From the alluring curve of her spine and her limbs to the composure of her superfine countenance, everything about her suggests poetry and depth and symmetry. Eyes widely drawn underneath her brow; a handsome nose descending onto a gracious mouth. The washed-out terracotta monotone and the blooming lotus of the pedestal add to the gathered, feminine ethos of the composition.
