Goddess Uma - Brass Sculpture

Goddess Uma - Brass Sculpture

$63.00

The beautiful brass figure of the Goddess Uma is given a resplendent treatment. The lower portion of the goddess is nicely decorated whereas the upper part is left unadorned. A deep sense of feminine beauty and sensuality is manifest on the figure. She is the consort of Shiva, one of the Trinity Gods in Hinduism, other two being Lord Brahma and Vishnu.


It is believed that the Goddess Uma is a figure of vital importance since without her constant presence all temple rituals are considered incomplete, as it is she, who ensures that Lord Shiva's beneficence is directed towards the devotee. Shiva and Uma have two sons, the elephant-headed god Ganesha and the youthful warrior god Skanda. In Tamil Nadu, Uma is believed to be the sister of god Vishnu and is often shown with his attributes of discus and conch shell. Thus, while images of Durga are found more often in the context of a Shiva temple, she is also at home in a Vaishnava context.
