Indian Deity Seated on a Turtle - OF.019
Price: $4000.00
This unidentified deity is an excellent example of technological advances made in Hindu bronze-casting during the 18th century. The core of the figure is made from bronze, visible as the darker metal. The paler, brighter metal is copper, which was added to provide highlights in a complex process at which Indian metalworkers excelled. The rendering is very effective, with the deity sitting cross-legged on a pedestal, in turn supported by a turtle that rests atop an ornate pedestal base. The latter characteristic implies that this piece is from Southern India. The right hand is in the Gyan mudra, implying simplicity and beginning. The left hand is in abhaya mudra, designed to protect and reassure the viewer.The condition matches the quality of casting. This is an attractive and impressive piece of Indian art.- (OF.019)
