Compare with a bronze figure at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in P. Pal, Indian Sculpture, vol. 2, 1988, p. 291, cat. no. 156. Andal carries a parrot, symbol of love and her devotion for Vishnu. She procociously wore a flower garland her father had made as an offering for Vishnu. When her father refused to offer the used garland to the god, Vishnu appeared in a dream and rebuked him. Andal came to be identified with Bhudevi, one of his wives.
