This magnificent metal-cast, a stylistic synthesis of India's great art traditions, represents Devi as she has been conceived in ancient art. The statue, though a contemporary work, represents, thus, the continuity of ancient India's great sculptural tradition, rivals the best of medieval bronzes, the Chola and Pala, and is a great master- piece by any parameter. This statue excels the classical art style of South Indian bronzes in the style of its features -a sharp well defined nose, angular face, pointed chin, broad forehead, small cute lips, lotus eyes and eye-lashes surmounting like Kamadeva's or Cupid's bow, in the beauty of form and elegant ornamentation. Well shaped breasts with finial like nipples enshrining their apex, a bottle-neck like narrow belly with mild folds, slender waist and heavy thighs, elegantly cast tall arms coming down to knees and broad curving shoulders define the exceptional beauty of Devi's form. This statue, cast in a posture of celestial dance, is the finest model of beauty as per Indian aesthetic tradition. The curves and knots of fingers, cast for giving expression to the desired 'bhava' or emotion, impart to the figure its exceptional appeal and effects. The figure of the goddess is so life-like that, while looking at it, one feels that she will step down the pedestal and will begin walking any moment.

In Indian tradition, Devi, the manifestation of primordial female energy, has often been identified as one or the other of the Puranic deities, usually either as Parvati or as Lakshmi, and sometimes as both. However, before Devi emerged as Parvati or Lakshmi, she has, in scriptural tradition, her own cult also. As this tradition has it, Mahavishnu, soon after the great deluge subsided, emerged as a child floating on a fig leaf. The dismayed Mahavishnu questioned himself as to who he was and whatfor he was there. The silence broke and there emerged a voice: 'Sarvam khalvidamevaham nanyadasty sanatanam', that is, 'All that is, it is me. There is nothing lasting but me'. When Vishnu was yet in trance, he saw a female form, Devi, appear before him. She was attended by many powers representing primarily riches and prosperity, wisdom and intellect and love and womanhood. These three faculties incarnated respectively as Mahalakshmi, Mahasaraswati and Parvati. In later Trinity cult, Laksmi got associated with Vishnu, Saraswati with Brahma and Parvati with Shiva. Subsequently, there evolved other Devi forms and Mahavidyas, first five, then seven, then nine and then gradually more than fifty. The number of Mahavidyas was first seven and then ten.

Later, when there developed Shaivism and Vaishnavism as two devotional cults, Devi forms, too, despite a single origin, took two different lines, the Shaivite and Vaishnavite. Lakshmi, the custodian of riches and prosperity, came to be the principal Vaishnavite deity and Parvati, representing perfect womanhood and perpetual love, Shaivite. In iconographic representations Parvati got associated with her attributes of Shiva and Laksmi those of Vishnu. Of the two Parvati has been more popular with sculptors and artists. Hence, in art, Devi merged with Parvati. She has been endowed with a more versatile form, ornamentation and personality. Despite some Vaishnavite attributes, the Devi form, represented in this statue, is close to Parvati. As for Vaishnavite attributes, it is said Vishnu once offered to serve Shiva as his Shakti and incarnated as Parvati. Obviously, Parvati got associated with her some of Vaishnavite attributes, especially his crown, as here in this statue, consisting of Vaishnava brooch and 'Kirtimukha'. She is wearing also on her arms 'Kirtimukha' bracelets. The towering crown, with auspicious 'Kirtimukha', is also typical of South Indian images.

This description by Prof. P.C. Jain and Dr. Daljeet. Prof. Jain specializes on the aesthetics of literature and is the author of numerous books on Indian art and culture. Dr. Daljeet is the curator of the Miniature Painting Gallery, National Museum, New Delhi. They have both collaborated together on a number of books.

A Statue was ordered on Dec 22nd and Paid 194.25 including FREE DELIVERY for me as a GIFT for Christmas and they Confirmed that it will be there in 4-5 days but it NEVER arrived till 30th of December and inspite of my various emails they only replied that it is being finished and will be shipped in 24hrs but that was a LIE and no further delivery information was every sent to me. I called and left a message on the phone number listed on their website which is a NY number but no one answered that phone and I left messages but no reply or update on my Statue was sent to me inspite of my daily emails to know the status. I still await this Statue but NO RESPONSIBLE REPLY.
