Figure, of a surasundari
Add to album

This red sandstone figure of a surasundari or heavenly beauty was made in the Khajuraho region of central India during the Candella period. It dates to the 11th century.

A surasundari is a nymph-like divinity inhabiting the sky. Here she is depicted as a voluptuous, slim-waisted woman standing in the tribhanga - thrice bent - pose. The features of her elaborately coiffeured hairstyle and her ornate and heavy jewellery have been rendered with careful detail.
