Detail Views

This is an amazing fertility figure from West Nepal. Rarely are the female fertility figures treated with this degree of realism.  The nude female figure cradles and infant in her arms.  Her sexual organs are accentuated and the kaolin - clay or lime based coating on the figure is splattered with the sacrificial blood of chickens.  There are even some downy feathers encrusted in the kaolin.  Without reservations I can say that this is the best West Nepal fertility figure I have ever seen.
