INDIA. INDONESIA. JAPAN. LANKA. LAO. THAILAND. TIBET. Title: A Standing Figure of the Female Goddess 'Sati', Pre-Angkor Style Khmer Art. Sakon Nakhon Province, Northern Thailand. Overview: An exquisite Khmer Bronze sculpture of a Female Goddess, probably that of 'Sati', stylistically and iconographically executed in traditional 'Pre-Angkor' style, from Khmer mythology. The figure is presented in its original unrepaired condition as found, a solid light weight cast elegantly modeled from the lost wax method. Features of the statue retain characteristics of the earliest Pre-Angkorian era, appearing delicate and refine with natural movement. The statue measures 9.75 inches (24.77cm) in height. Description: Early Khmer Bronze statue of a female deity discovered over 60 years ago in the Ban Muang district of Sakon Nakhon province of northern Thailand, duely noting as possibly one of the earliest known examples of pre angkorian statuary produced during the reign of the Khmer Empire's existence in present day Thailand. XXX In this context the statue of Sati can be understood as Shiva's first consort, a devoted and faithful wife, a personification of the divine female energy and manifestation of the goddess Adi Shakti, who took human birth at the suggestion of Brahma, she was born daughter of Daksha Prajapati, son of Brahma. In asking goddess Sati to take human birth, Brahma's plan was that she would entice Shiva with humble devotions bringing him out of his long meditation as an ascetic recluse and marry him. Image Details: The statue is exceptional, displaying supple modelling, fashioned with a full face and hair arranged in a 'Chignon', depicted standing in 'samabhanga' with her feet firmly planted on a square plinth, she is gracefully poised with both hands raised in mudra, while holding a root of 'utpala' or blue lotus, broken off at the bud(s). XXX Her figure is modest with broad hips and bare breasted, wearing a long stylized sampot wound around her hips, fastened by a plain belt. All of the decorations of the garment are fashioned by carefully inscribed incisions, the wide central panel draped to the garment hem, as well as the curvered pattern of the loincloth. XXX Her youthful face resembles a full moon with wide fleshy lips, and earlobes deformed by wearing heavy earring pendants. The modelling of the slightly taunt body appears to have been based on natural observation with the hands raised in the 'vitarka' mudra, the gesture of argument or debate. Because it was modeled in the round it can be asssumed it was made as an object of worship and not part of a architectural decoration, through comparison with statues in the Phnom Da A group of Cambodia, it can be inferred that it probably represents Shiva's first wife 'Sati'.
