A BASTAR BRONZE OF GODDESSES ON A SWING
Bronze
India, 19th-20th century

Swings are among the strangest but at the same time the most desired from the tribal art of the Bastar. They are usually made of several parts: in this case, the presentation consists of two parts: the goddesses on the swing and the base with the frame where the swing is attached. The goddess that is sitting on the left side of the swing is holding with its left arm the swing and with the spare arm a vessel. The other goddess is holding with the left arm a sceptre and a sword in the right hand. On top of each pillar holding the swing can be seen birds which act as guardians to protect the goddesses.

Dimensions: HEIGHT 24 CM
Condition: A slight damage can be seen on the left pillar and a tiny hole to the left goddess that is sitting on the swing. Otherwise in excellent condition.
Provenance: Collection of an Indian Gentleman

Verkaufspreis:  € 750
