Ancient sculpture of the Hindu goddess Parvati accompanied by her children Ganesha and Kartikeya. This stele in black phyllite from the 11th century comes from the Mahayana of Pala Indian Buddhist dynasty, which ruled over Bengal and Bihar from the 8th to the 12th century. This goddess representing the power of procreation and destruction is the daughter of Himavat, king of the Himalayas and Meena. Carved in round and in a state of museum conservation, this powerful and harmonious work of art reveals all the beauty of the refinement of its chiselling through the transparency of a dhoti that reveals the curves of its body.
Really good condition
