The maiden, represented in this statue, has been modeled on the line on which Khajuraho sculptor, working at its Parasanath temple, modeled his Shringar-rata nayika holding a mirror in her right hand and applying vermilion with the other. The Khajuraho maiden is possessed of the celestial charm and the transcendental beauty, as are the mythical denizens of the Indraloka. The represented figure is hence known as apsara, a superhuman maid. This brass statue, due to the greater plasticity of its medium and being a subsequent work, with other models and ideals of beauty in perception, marks a subtle improvement over its stone counterpart. It blends, in its modeling, the grace and plasticity of the worldwide known Gyaraspur Yakshi as well. Khajuraho apsara is broadly a relief, which has limited scope to depict the beauty of figure's back. This statue has greater perspective to feed the viewing eye. In its total impact, the figure of the damsel, represented by this brass piece, is endowed with greater mystic charm, mythical beauty and divine grace, such as are not the attributes of this world.
