THE GODDESS PARVATI

Late 18th/Early19th Century

Bronze

Height 75 cm (29.75 in)

The youthful, sensuous Parvati is depicted in the most elegant of poses, the tribhanga, the gentle S shape of her form adorned with numerous belts and with strings of pearls hanging from her hips. Her abundant hair is pinned high and embellished with further jewels.

Parvati and her husband Shiva are known as quarrelsome gods so it is no surprise that Parvati bore Karttikeya, the god of war and is also the mother of Ganesh, the elephant headed god whose own father quarrelled with him and cut off his head, replacing it with the first animal that was found - the elephant.

Provenance:
Dr. Hans Wolfgang Schumann (b. Dusseldorf 1928) indologist, ethnologist and student of comparative religion. He lectured in India from 1960 and became the German Consul General in Bombay from 1988 until 1993. He was the author of numerous reference books on India and Buddhism to which he had converted and was awarded the Rabindranath Thakur Culture Prize for Literature in India in 2000.
