Magnificent Carved Hindu Architectural Corbel. Fragment. Temple. Tamil Nadu, India
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.
