Alas Kanya: Portrait of the famous sculpture from 11th century
Rejoicing her youth and beauty the divine figure “Alas Kanya” from Chandela dynasty symbolizes the significance of body in attaining the ecstasy of salvation. Conserved at Bharat Kala Bhawan museum, B.H.U., the 11th century sculpture characterizes the rich cultural heritage of India and entails the Indian philosophy of procuring transcendence through the unity of body, mind and soul. By capturing her juvenile figure, the artist wants to illustrate the avidity resulted from her youth.
Looked carefully, foreshortening of upper body part compared to lower body part gives an impression of looking at sculpture in a museum.
