A brass figure of Radha
Orissa, circa 16th century
Standing in a flexed pose on a domed lotus base and flat circular platform, Radha holds a lotus bud as an offering in her raised right hand, her left hand by her hip in the gesture of katakamukha. Her hair is tied in an remarkably long and detailed braid that terminates in a triple tassel by her right hip. Her body is modeled with powerful limbs, large circular breasts, pinched waist and broad hips, and she wears a girdle with a fan shape pubic cover. Her face is rendered with a joyous expression with large almond-shaped eyes, flared nostrils, and smiling mouth above a prominent square chin.
