Brief Description Four-armed Parvati standing in samabhanga.
Detailed Description Four-armed Parvati, standing in samabhanga, stretches the lower right hand in varada and holds lotus flower in the upper right and trishula and ghanta in the left hands. She is flanked by female chauri-bearers as well as Jaya and Vijaya carrying danda or sword on the sides. Lion is represented on the proper right and mutilated deer (?) on the left of her feet placed on a lotus. Her head is flanked by a malavidyadhara on each side, that on the left being defaced. She wears a jatamukuta, kundalas, torque, hara wristlets and anklets and is draped in a sari and scarf which winds round both her arms. This is a typical early medieval art- specimen of Himalayan hills, characterized by metallic finish, elongation of the figures and an ornamental arched canopy crowning the image which is called as Katyuri Art.
