Object: Figure, Meenakshi (Parvati) (More lots)

Material: Sterling silver 925
Period: mid 20th century
Region/ Country of origin: India
Theme/ depiction: Deity
Condition: Very good condition, see description
Dimensions: 17.5×0×0 cm

The cult of Meenakshi, avatar of Parvati, is strongly felt in southern India, where in Madurai, in the huge temple dedicated to her, the ceremony of the union between Parvati and Shiva (Meenakshi and Sundareswarar) has been held every day for 1000 years.

The statue is entirely handmade from very high purity silver (925/950), acid tested.

Characteristic features include the fish-shaped eyes and the parrot held in the hand.

There an opening at the top for essences that can be used in the Puja.

Slight imperfections are due to the fact that this piece is entirely handcrafted.

Height 17.5 cm, weight 180 g.
