Hindu / Indian Brass Wedding Elephant Statue, India
A stunning piece of brass art. Elephants have always played a prominent part in Indian culture. They are considered to be very sacred and symbolize good luck and prosperity; hence they are usually a part of most Indian weddings. Throughout history, elephants were present at royal weddings. Royalty and Nawabs would ride on elephants to their wedding venues to symbolize their power.
When there is not a live Asian elephant to be found, brass statues with lots of detail and SOLID would be the next best thing.
Age is unknown but I would guess mid-1900. Good condition.
So sorry but this gorgeous statue has been sold.
