Gazing at herself in a hand mirror, this apsara is a manifestation of beauty originally carved in one of the Khajuraho temples in Madhya Pradesh. A nymph in the kingdom of the Hindu deities, an apsara seduces with her dance. Brijesh Kumar sculpts this sandstone replica with exceptional detail, faithful to the original.
The Khajuraho temples are adorned with numerous sculptures, including graceful maidens in a variety of provocative postures, dancers, musicians and embracing couples. They are believed to represent the tantric practices that took place as a form of worship in the temples.
