She is young and fertile and formed in the finest proportions of her sex. That irresistible face, that curvaceous figure: these betray her divine status as an apsara resident of the sacred court of Lord Indra. The sculpture that you see on this page is of the Indian equivalent of the European muse; she is the apsara, possessed of otherworldly beauty and poetry of being.
Nothing short of the deepest inspiration could project such beauty and life onto pure brass. She stands in the tribhanga stance - the body juts out at three different junctures - on an ornate plinth. Long legs; full thighs drawn together by a snake wound around the curves. Superb bone structure of the pelvic region, forming a sharp angle with the miniscule girth of the waist. Wide-set shoulders drawn seductively by the weight of a gorgeous bosom.
The bright-eyed apsara gazes into the distance. With the fingers smeared in sindoor (powdered vermillion) she touches the parting of her hair. As she does so, she pictures the man she desires and finishes off the short-lived yet pregnant ritual of every woman blessed with a lover and provider. Note how the braided part of her hair rests at a realistic angle upon the luscious curve of her hip.
