Khajuraho monuments are famous for their Nagara style architectures and erotic sculptures, which makes it one of the most significant historical sites in India today. This apsara shown here is also inspired by Khajuraho carvings and stands on a heighted pedestal chiseled in lotus petals, carrying a mirror in her left hand relishing her innate beauty and sensual attributes by which this nymph can give pleasure to both gods and men by her singing and dance. This statue is carved out in superfine quality of wood by professional sculptors from South India and framed in an extensively carved arch having floral patterns and large coils at the top with two celestial nymphs standing on either side in a dancing posture.
The curve of her waist and the large breasts are aptly postured, maintaining a finite balance to the body. The flow of her low waist fitted dhoti with a traditional styled kamarband that hangs from the front and sides enhances the beauteous quotient of her personality; the jewels she is embellished with are placed evenly on her body and complement with the elegant crown that glorifies on her head. The expression of her face gives a blissful feel and arouses a sense of happiness to the viewer. Apart from its essence, the sculptor has also given due importance to the way it is carved and the dual colored texture of wood is a further enhancer of its charm. Its large size allows it to be placed as an interior décor in hotels and restaurants.
