Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

 

 

An antique – at least – carved architectural temple fragment.

 

It is populated by Hindu deities . . .  many hard for me to identify.  I am reasonably sure that Vishnu is in the center shown with multiple arms.  The raised arm is a sign of reassurance.

 

Above is a carving of a mythological protector beast, but not Garuda.

 

It is an amazing piece created in the temple city of Tamil Nadu in southern India.

 

Acquired from a Gallery in NYC who reported it was in a private Collector’s hands for three generations.  In great shape.

 

A rare find for a Serious Collector.
