Very good condition, see description

Face mask depicting the goddess Parvati.
Hindu devotees believe that when an icon is consecrated by the priest's rituals, the very eyes of the depiction come to life and the figure becomes a living god. The moment devotees establish eye contact, the so-called darshan, the relationship between the sacred sculpture and the faithful becomes interpersonal, thus breaking down every barrier between human and divine.
The foil is of excellent quality and made of high-quality hand-embossed silver.
Parvati’s face is represented with the third eye, adorned with jewels and with accurate hair.
The eyes are big, the face is serene.
Traces of vermilion red have settled over time for ritual pujas.
