Bronze Ritual Figure Varthi from North Kerala

Bronze Ritual Figure Varthi from North Kerala


This magnificent bronze figure of a woman is from North Kerala and was used in temple rituals. She is shown wearing wooden sandals, a pleated and tired skirt, jewelry and an elaborate head dress seen very commonly in the costumes worn by people depicting gods while enacting their stories and dancing to music. She is also seen holding a bell always used during the puja and a small handled container for lighting cotton in oil as “harathi” to rotate in front of the idol while performing the puja. The ritual figure is a beautifully made artifact and is perfect piece for the collection of art history lovers. The figure will make for a splendid decorative piece and bring about an ethnic charm unique to the south, especially Kerala. So make it yours and let it add the grandeur and glory of the olden days.
