Magnificent bust | face of Indian Goddess Gauri or Paravati handcrafted from a single block of wood with a rich antique ochre yellow finish by skilled craftsmen, showing off the intricate details of her features and fine jewellery.
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.
Along with Lakshmi - goddess of wealth and prosperity and Saraswati - goddess of knowledge and learning, Gauri or Parvati forms the trinity of Hindu goddesses.
Note: Colour and design may slightly vary as this vintage Gauri is handcrafted and hand painted and each one is unique.
