Little Goddess

Bronze has historically been a favored material for representing divine figures, owing to its durability and aesthetic qualities.

The oldest known bronze statue (or statuette, considering its small size of 10.5cm) is the prehistoric “Dancing Girl,” circa 2500 BC, excavated in the Indus Valley civilization city of Mohenjo-Daro (modern-day Pakistan).

She is most likely a Hindu goddess, either Parvati or Shakti (essentially the same deity, symbolizing the diverse and multifaceted nature of the Divine Feminine).

I titled this bronze piece “Little Goddess” as a tribute.

The sculpture is crafted with a bronze of exceptional quality, containing 85% copper, significantly higher than the standard bronze composition, which typically contains around 55% copper. This higher copper content contributes to the superior quality and durability of the sculpture.
