Dancing Lady

Sandstone (Large, 79cm)


An exemplary work of traditional Indian art perfected here by R. Mani. Inspired by women figures of world famous Khajuraho Temple, R. Mani skilfully created his own masterpiece - dancing lady. With nothing but jewels and a scarf to cover her body, the beautiful female is standing practically nude. Her body exposed, she is presented in a seductive pose, while performing a dance. Her voluptuous, feminine forms have been ideally carved by the artist, to further highlight the divine beauty of the female body. She is ideal. This piece mesmerises our eyes. It seems as if she is about to come alive and start her performance in front of the audience.

Female sculptures are symbolic to physical and divine beauty of women, feminine forms and female sensuality.

About R. Mani

R. Mani born in 1965 , is originally from Mahabalipuram located in Tamil Nadu state, South India. Mani was brought up surrounded by Art. His father, Dhruva Pratap was a well-known sculptor, maintaining and restoring sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India. Then passing on his skills to his son.

R. Mani sources his inspiration from world famous temples of India such as Meenakshi, Khajuraho, and Ellora Cave to name but a few. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan style sculptures, the artist specializes in traditional Indian Gods and Goddesses. He works with traditional Indian materials such as Sandstone, Granite and Marble.

Holder of two awards from the President of India, he is especially well known for his Buddha sculptures. He imbues his Buddha faces with such serenity and a sense of blissfulness that it’s no surprise they are used by so many to assist in deep meditation. Some of the leading meditation centres around the world carry his work. R. Mani's intricate Goddess figures are equally revered and he has exhibited his work both in Germany and the USA.
