The female of the species has always been a mystery to the human mind. Of the many attempts to resolve this paradox, a particularly satisfying one has been through the medium of art. Both the feminine psych and physique has been a constant source of inspiration for artists. The Indian sculptural tradition, largely based on its ancient literary heritage, has celebrated a category of semi-divine females known as the Apsaras. The word ‘apsara’ signifies that they were received from the waters (apah in Sanskrit).

Statues of Apsaras inevitably show them as well-endowed women with voluptuous bodies, a symbol of fertility and also aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Often they are modelled to show the theme of ‘love in separation’, expressed through the act of writing a love letter or confiding themselves in their pet parrot or beautifying themselves in a mirror (shringara), while waiting for their lover. Other attractive models include those playing a drum or stringed instrument, dancing, or even plucking a thorn out of her feet.

Note: all my items are photographed up close and personal, so that you can see their beautiful details. Some items may appear large than real size, so please check the measurements carefully to avoid any confusion. Though, we work hard to photograph them as close to the real colour, keep in mind that lightning, props and background may cause a difference on the colour. Colour will also vary from monitor to monitor.
