Carved Lady



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 - a voluptuous lady figure. The beautiful female is standing almost nude, while applying her make-up. Her voluptuous, feminine forms are skilfully carved with details of traditional jewels hanging around her neck.

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

Unlike in Western cultures, in Hindu tradition female body is known to represent fertility, abundance and prosperity.

Artist - R. Mani ( Chenai, India)

Mani born in 1965 , is originally from Mahabalipuramlocated in Tamil Nadu state, South India. Influenced by Gupta and Kushan art periods, the artist specialises on traditional Indian Gods and Godesses. His inspiration is often sourced from world famous historic temples like Khajuraho and Meenakshi. R. Mani uses traditional Indian materials such as Sandstone, Granite and Soft stone.

Mani was brought up surrounded by art. His father, Dhruva Pratap was a well-known sculptor and maintained and restored the sculptures of the famous Konark Temple in South India, passing on his skills to his son. 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 in some of the leading meditation centres around the world.

PS: With all hand made stone and wood sculptures, there might be some natural erosion with cracks and spots, but that adds to the one of kind pieces that we sell here at Mystik River.
