Mother Goddess (Folk)

Mother Goddess

Standing in Samapada, this goddess exudes calm dignity that you normally do not see in folk bronzes. She is four armed and hence a divine figure.  She is holding some kind of Mother Goddess Backarm in her rear hands and a cup in lower left hand. Unusually the right lower hand has its palm facing downwards.

She is wearing bangles in her hands and two necklaces. On her head, there is some kind of ornamental decoration for her hair. Her back is not worked on but for the continuation of her necklace and long braided hair.

It is about 13 cm in height. This may be from Central India and may not date prior to the nineteenth century.

Large face, large eyes, high forehead and trace of masculinity on the face are worth noting. Appears to be single cast.
