Veistos (1) - Pronssi - Durga Mahishasuramardini - Intia - 1500-luku
Good condition, see description

Durga in gold-coloured bronze with blackish patina. The goddess appears standing with one leg resting on Mahinsha's decapitated body and at the front the separated head of the buffalo-demon. On one side of the base (look at the photos) you can see the tiger in the same way as the bronzes from other older eras (Buddhists, for example). The goddess with four arms, two holding the trident and other two behind holding a disc and a shell, which is not usual at all. The double crown is reminiscent of those of Himachal Pradesh and other Himalayan regions. Great earrings, also in archaic style. It's a mysterious and fascinating bronze not only iconographically.
