Description: We are, by this time, thoroughly familiar with the Salabhanjika sculptures referring to the sports or pastimes engaged in by the females of [the] royal household or, on the cosmic level, the nymphs of Indra's celestial realm, Here, the Yakshi is participating in the estival called salabhanjika: the gathering of the sala blossoms: the term which gave the type of scene depicted its name, Soft contours subtly create the form of the Yakshi's body, and no harsh angles impose upon her to make her nonchalant attitude clumsy in any way, -- Provenance unknown, Mathura, Curzon Museum,
