Description
A beautiful sculpture!  The piece is fully carved with the same amount of detail on the back of the piece as in the front.  Shakti is seated in a relaxed, comfortable, exposed posture wearing only leggings and jewelry.  She explodes with sensuality!  Her necklace is beautiful.  It hangs around her neck then wraps between her breasts and flows around her sides and up her back to end up attached to the halo in the back of her head.  Her headdress is simple yet beautiful.  All her skin is hand polished with a soft stone giving it a darker appearance.  this contrasts with the light gray of Her clothing and jewelry.  Boga Shakti is the form Parvati takes before entering the inner sanctum of the temple with her lover Shiva.  Boga meaning pleasure and Shakti meaning energy she thus is a very potent force of sexuality. 
 
About Black Granite:  Indian black granite is a wonderful stone. It is capable of a variety of finishes which can give it a variety of different color possibilities. It is possible to see 4-5 different colors on a single piece depending on the degree of polish or roughness of the stone. Indian black granite is among the best granite in the world sought after by artists globally. Unlike inferior quality granite, Indian granite is extremely dense and without impurities that plague other stones. The density of granite makes a granite sculpture perfect for any garden because it can be left outside in extreme heat and extreme cold for years without care.
About Shakti
By you this universe is borne,
By you this world is created,
O Devi, by you it is protected

The Shakta tradition glorifies Devi, the consort of Shiva, as the World Mother who, as Shakti, is the energy giving power behind all creation.  Shakti is shown in many forms.  As Uma or Parvati, she is the gentle consort of Shiva.  As Kamakshi or Rajarajeshwari she is the Great Mother.  In the form of Durga she rides a tiger, the ego and arrogance that man must subdue.  In her angry form she is Kali. In her sensual form she is Bogashakti. Bogashakti is the form that Parvati takes before going into the inner sanctum of a temple with her husband, Shiva. "Boga" meaning pleasure and "Shakti" meaning energy; this form embodies Devi's sexual energy.

The earliest term applied to the divine feminine, which still retains its popular usage, is Shakti. The word Shakti is used in a variety of ways ranging from its use as a way to illustrate the ultimate primordial creative power, to expressing the capacity or power of words to convey meaning. The word 'Shakti' is derived from the root 'shak,' meaning potency or the potential to produce, an assertion of Her inherent creative aptitude.

All interpretations of the word 'Shakti' hold common one parameter, Power. Specifically, Shakti means Power, Force and Feminine Energy. She represents the fundamental creative instinct underlying the cosmos, and is the energizing force of all divinity, of every being and every thing. Devotees believe the whole universe to be a manifestation of Shakti, who is also known by her general name Devi, from the Sanskrit root 'div' which means to shine.
