Painting - Oil
Lajja Gauri is a goddess associate with abundance and fertility in Shaktism cults through myths of Sati and Parvati. Early dipictions of her date back to the 1st century. In this painting by Guillermina the focus was more on her nurturing energy as a Mother this is why the breasts are greater enhanced. This piece is an oil medium, with a hidden painting underneath. The red was chosen in the background for the root chakra energy for a woman when she is giving birth. The worship of Lajja Gauri is prevelent in subcontinents of India. Lajja Gauri is a headless goddess so that emphasis is placed on her more womanly features to strengthen that of fertility and womanhood. Notice that in place of Lajja Gauri's head there is a Lotus. When Lajja Gauri is dipicted without arms this shows a greater emphasis on Motherhood. Along Lajja Gauri's body is jewels to greater show the depths of her beauty. On the side of Lajja Gauri is scorpions to represent Serket the scorpion goddess that protects both Mothers and children.
