Ragini Saindhavi

Description Provenance Credit
Description The Sanskrit text at the top describes the dancing woman in the doorway, who personifies the musical mode ("ragini") called Saindhavi: Wearing bangles on both hands and making [viewers] completely intoxicated, here comes the smart and happy girl Saindhavi, with movements [as graceful as] an elephant's. Clad in a red blouse, skilled in lovemaking, and adorned with breasts like waterpots and lotus-petal eyes more beautiful than an antelope's, this is Saindhavi Ragini.
Provenance John and Berthe Ford, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 2002, by gift.
Credit Gift of John and Berthe Ford, 2002
