Sant Mirabai -|
Indiaís Longest Laterite Sculpture
Sant Mirabai strumming on her tambori and measuring 14 meters by 5 meters was chiseled in Greco -
Roman style from a vast expanse of laterite stone by Maendra Jocelino Araujo Alvares in just 30 days.
The Sculpture shows Influence of the Gandara school of art, the kumkum on the forehead, the armlet,
the pattli on her wrists and the paisona around her ankles give the sculpture a Characteristic Goan appeal.
One also notices a particular type of ornament called fullam (golden flowers) worn by Goan Hindu women
distinctly adoring Mirabaiís head. A lotus and the sun on the tambori adds to the mysticity of Sant Mirabai.
This work has been cited In the Limca Book of Records as the longest laterite sculpture in India.
