Uma - Lady of the Mountains is an ancient Mountain-goddess, who shows us how to balance our many aspects. Beautiful and benignly powerful, she is also known as Parvati, the consort of Shiva. ... (Uma meaning 'light') She is usually represented at his side in Indian sculpture. At Koh Ker, a short-lived royal capital established from 921 to 944 A.D in Cambodia, and in Nepal, she seen as a divinity in her own right. She is often described by texts and sculptures as the ferocious Durga, typically characterised by twelve weapons.

Phillipe has masterfully captured sculptures of the ancient goddess that have been partially destroyed through the ages. Unbelievably Uma here has been sculpted using Papier Mache techniques. 

For anybody with an interest in ancient Spiritual Gods and Goddesses from Asia this beauty will be a wonderful addition to your collection.

  • 39x11cm 
  • Terracotta Effect

All of Philippe's sculptures are entirely made by hand with recycled paper and vegetable fiber. They are then decorated with natural pigments and acrylic colors. Respecting the environment, the manufacturing process also makes it possible to recycle old newspapers. The result is impressive, the sculptures really appear as though they've been crafted in heavy stone, bronze, wood, terracotta ... Once you have the object d'art in your hand, you realize due to its lightness that it is only paper. The sculpture is both light and very solid. Remarkable.

Each Sculpture is a One Off Creation and should be treasured in its new home

Note: A product handcrafted from recycled materials may differ slightly in colour when compared to the image you see on the screen. Each piece is unique so the color of the sculpture may slightly vary
