Antique Indian Bronze Heads of Gauri, 19th Century
These small bronze hollow heads represent the beautiful goddess Gauri (the Glowing One, another name for Parvati), the consort of Shiva and the epitome of marital fidelity and devotion. Both have chiseled features with large almond-shaped white painted eyes, a bindi on their foreheads and their black hair in a single plait with hair ornaments. Devotees generally worship these sculptures in pairs.
