DEITY WITH SPOUSE ON HORSEBACK
Bronze
India
approx. 16th cent.
HEIGHT 9,6 CM

A standing horse on a tiered base, upon which the deities are seated, in front the male holding sword and reins, behind him the little female. Presumably the deity Khandoba, identical to Shiva, is depicted. His wife is called, among other names, Mhalsa. Due to age good "soft" mellowing through handling as well as patina. Inside the base is a silver written collection number "354".
