Goddess Parvati has her name signifying the ‘Goddess of mountains’ as she is the daughter of King Himavat (King of mountains). This snowy white marble statue is carved in such a mesmerizing beauty that it aptly highlights goddess’ gentle aspects of beauty and benevolence. She is the goddess of love, fertility, devotion and represents the universal feminine energy in Hinduism, identified as Shakti. Parvati, the consort of Lord Shiva represents the recreative energy and power of Shiva.
Goddess sits here in lalitasana on a stylized pedestal carved in fresh blooming lotus petal patterns decorated with gold borders. She is typically garbed in a red sari but here the beautifully flowing white sari expresses her purity, peacefulness and divinity. Golden adornments that cover her body complement to that of her pure pearl white attires. Unlike her usual iconographic posture of hands, she sits here with her hands joined in anjali mudra as a gesture of her composure and divine offering.
Have a precise look at the expression of her eyes, spreading an aura of gentleness and spirituality along with the delicate smile of her red lips. The goddess is glorified in a haloed crown profusely studded with silver stones. Parvati’s vahana Lion, sits bowing down in obeisance near her feet on the pedestal.
