Question: Parvati’s Pose?

“Why does Parvati have a weird posture in all her statues?”~Querent
“In Indian and Asian sculpture and art, it’s called the Tribhanga stance, or Tri-Bent Pose. It’s associated with an ancient style of dance I enjoy.
I do stand like that–though not in as exaggerated a hip-curve as in statues. It has to do with a one of my legs being slightly shorter than the other as the result of an injury. This has given me scoliosis of the spine and if I stand too long in one spot, it becomes uncomfortable. This pose relieves some of that strain on my back muscles.
It is a highly useful pose when it comes to balancing a baby on the hip. When you look at statues like this in the future, imagine it holding a baby and it will make more sense.
The pose is a lot sexier in art than in reality.
If BalMurh is followed, you may share this on Orion Oracle.”~Molinara.
