Description

An original oil painting of an Apsara or Heavenly angel in the Angkor Wat style.

The Apsara is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist mythology – a ‘celestial nymph’ or ‘celestial maiden’.Apsaras are beautiful, supernatural female beings. They are youthful and elegant, and superb in the art of dancing. They are often the wives of the Gandharvas, the court musicians of Indra. They dance to the music made by the Gandharvas, usually in the palaces of the gods, entertain and sometimes seduce gods and men. As caretakers of fallen heroes, they may be compared to the valkyries of Norse mythology.

As etherial beings who inhabit the skies, and are often depicted taking flight, or at service of a god, they may be compared to Angels. Apsaras are said to be able to change their shape at will, and rule over the fortunes of gaming and gambling. They are also associated with fertility rites.

This painting is already stretched and ready to wall hang.

Material: Oil Dimensions (HxWxD): 39.5cm x 20cm
