(G31) Radiating humility and grace, the round face surmounted by a high foliate diadem composed of tight scrolls and centred with a large flower-head, the petals of the flower embellished with gold pigment, her hair arranged in an elaborate high-looped chignon, some tresses looped around the ears and flowing over the shoulders, with her soft features lovingly carved beneath a pronounced hairline, a large urna indented in the centre of her forehead, with high-arching eyebrows over half-closed almond-shaped eyes, the full lips pursed in an expression of serenity, garlanded with an elaborate floral necklace centred with a large flower-head, wearing armlets and bracelets on both arms, her brahmanic cord looped around her stout torso, her right hand with tapered fingers clutching the end of her elongated shoulder scarf, the left hand supporting the pose, she sits grandly in rajalilasana, the folds of her expansive dhoti echoing the rhythm of her body, details on the surface enlivened with applied gold pigment.

Provenance:In a private Singaporean collection prior to March 1981.
