Brief Description Two armed Yogini seated in lalitasana, holding club in her left and a bilva fruit in her right hands respectively. Her vahana or vehicle is a swan that peaks on the fruit. She has a well modelled body with full breasts, slim waist and rounded abdomen. The arching sweep of her buffalo-horns frames an elegantly tapered face. Her eyes are half closed in contemplation. She is adorned with a necklace which suggests tribal affiliations. A girdle is placed low on her waist and she wears heavy anklets and bangles. Damaged at places.
