Brass Bust of Gangaur Gauri - Goddess of Fertility, Love & Devotion In Brown Patina. H 12 cm x W 10 cm
Magnificent brass bust of Goddess Gangaur Gauri or Paravati with a rich brown patina handcrafted by artisans from Maharashtra, where it is believed that after a temporary long sacrament Gauri and Shiva reunited on this day.
Gauri is the goddess of love, fertility and sacrifice and holds great significance during the famous Gangaur festival celebrated soon after Holi - the festival of colours especially in Rajasthan with great enthusiasm and affection for Gauri, the consort of Lord Shiva .
While married women worship Gauri, the embodiment of perfection and marital love for the success of their married life, unmarried women worship the Goddess for being blessed with good husband.
Gangaur Festival also celebrates marital fidelity, monsoon, and Harvest. The word ‘Gangaur’ is literally made up of two words, ‘Gana’ and ‘Gaur’. ‘Gana’ is identical with Lord Shiva and ‘Gaur’ which stands for Gauri or Parvati symbolizes Saubhagya (marital bliss). Gauri is the image of brilliance and marital love.
