Antique Goddess Figure from South Nepal
Integral to the Puja ceremonies of Southern Nepal and India, is the worship of the many Hindu Goddesses. This wonderful Goddess image has been carved from one piece of heavy wood and shows a beautiful patina from years of devotion. The image, from the late 19th or early 20th century, is in good condition with only slight damage to the vessel on her head, as seen in the photo details below. The sensuous detailing of her clothing as well as the substantial anklets above her feet reflect the importance of the Goddess image in Hindu devotion.
Measurement: 9 3/8" (23 1/2 cm) high
