The lower garment of the goddess is tightly wrapped around her legs and the
upper part of her anatomy is bare. In classical Indian aesthetics the
breasts are accentuated as a symbol of their nourishing potential, and the
hips are rotund and ample, as an indication of her child bearing capacity.
The Tibetan aesthetic is slightly different. Here the feminine charms of the
goddesses are subdued in the context of the physical body, but nevertheless
her compassion, grace, and boon of mercy are reflected in the language her
body speaks, whether be it her slight, brooding smile or the sophisticated
and suspended dynamic of her slender limbs.
