Description

positioned atop a waisted, integral double-lotus base, standing with the slender right arm suspended by the side grasping a sash in the fleshy hand, the left arm tucked close to the body and bent at the elbow, the exposed torso with a rounded belly and the hips tilted forward above straight legs, the body adorned with a necklace at the chest, a long chain laden with different types of beads hanging across the body from the left shoulder to the right knee, and an armband and bracelet, a long sash draped across the shoulders and sweeping in ribbon-like folds across the arms and body, the dhoti tied with a sash at the waist and falling in rhythmic folds along the contours of the body, the bare feet peeking out from beneath the hem, the stone an even creamy-gray tone
