Elements Part II: Metal

Continuing my response to 's Friday Five Photo Project (F2P2). The topic was the five Elements of nature: Earth, water, metal, wood and fire. Here's the second – Metal. Fire was the topic of my previous post.


During this visit to India, my cousin-brother Ramnath gifted me a beautiful bronze of Uma (Parvati) as Shivakami. This is a late 18th century reproduction of the 11th century piece from the Kulottunga I era. Notice how graceful her pose is.

In my living room, the morning light illuminates it nicely, casting the primary shadow accentuating the sensuous curve of her hips. Thank you Ramnath!
