The tradition of Solah Shringar, or 16 ornaments is a ritual that goes back to ancient times. Indian brides adorn themselves in a time-honoured ritual manner designed to pay homage to Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of beauty, fertility and prosperity. This tradition is considered a symbol of beauty and fertility and remains one of the trademarks of the great Indian wedding.
This intricately carved chalkstone sculpture represents the woman as she embarks on the cycle of adorning herself on her wedding day. The expert craftsmanship highlights her beauty while the delicate handiwork around the face captures her beauty and her joy as she readies herself to look beautiful for her husband. The sculpture perfectly captures her grace, her poise and her inherent sensuality as she begins her journey to embark on her new life.
In all its grandeur, this beautiful sculpture is durable and makes a perfect addition to your courtyard decor, as you welcome people into your home.

In Indian culture, we always put teachers and purveyors of knowledge on a pedestal. For us, there is no learning endeavor that begins without the blessings of Goddess Saraswati. Seated here on a pedestal with the Veena in her arms, she represents the purity of mind that only learning and growth can bring. Standing testament to the artist’s creative ability is the rare representation of the Goddess in Blackstone.
