Indian 'Hindu Divinity' Bust 008310
Indian 'Hindu Divinity' Bust
Copper-alloy, 65 grams, 57.07 mm. Post-medieval (16th-18th century AD). A cast bust of a Hindu deity with closed eyes and full, rounded (female?) features and ornamental headgear comprising a close-fitting cap with scale decoration. On the crest of the cap is the base for an additional emblem, the loss of which makes identification of the deity problematic - possibly Parvati, Lakshmi or Shakti. Reference: Desai, K. Treasures of the Heras Institute, New Delhi, 1976 fig.101-4. Good fine condition, some loss of surface at rear of head. Provenance: from an old English collection.
