Antique Indian Hand-Carved Limestone Temple God with Lotus Leaf Motif
This sophisticated hand-carved Indian limestone sculpture was believed to have been executed during the 17th century. This kind of antiquity served as a spiritual guard to temples, and were typically situated at the entrance. The central deity dons a pointed hat and long beard. He holds a staff that extends from his chest to the floor and is surrounded by a wreath of lotus leaves. Typical of antiquities of this age, much of the detail has been softened over centuries, resulting in a sculpture that verges on abstraction resulting in an object that appears simultaneously modern and antiquarian. As a result, it is a timeless piece, as versatile as it is compelling. It would be a wonderful objet d'art in any style of interior from classical to contemporary. This is a particularly example of antique South East Asian art, perfect for collectors of the genre as well as those who simply appreciate aesthetically outstanding objects. It comes presented on a custom brushed bronze base. Excellent vintage condition. India, 17th century. Dimensions: 14.75" W X 11" D X 24.75" H.
