Khmer Bronze Goddess Uma

$6,800.00

Between 900 and 1200, the Khmer empire produced some of the world’s most magnificent architectural masterpieces in the area known as Angkor. Uma was a favored goddess of Khmer artists due to her important stature in the Hindu hierarchy. Also known as Parvati, daughter of the mountains, she was the consort of Shiva. Without her constant presence no temple ritual was considered complete, since it is she who ensures that Shiva’s beneficence is directed towards the devotee. Shiva and Uma had two sons, the elephant-headed god Ganesha and the youthful warrior god Skanda.

Superb style with lovely original patina!
