Exuding power and grace this diminutive image of a goddess is one of the earliest surviving bronze sculptures from Nepal. Her broad hips and simple, elegant garments and jewelry barely interrupt the contours of her form. Her lowered right hand, in the gift-giving gesture, holds a fruit, and her left hand once held the stem of a flower.
