  • The paint shows the years of wear this Shiva has gone through with its subtle cracking and faded look
  • Shiva holds a trident, a drum with Mahakala on it, a sword and a mango
  • There was some issue in identifying it as Shiva as these are not all weapons typically used by Shiva
  • The piece was a gift to the Bangaldeshi ambassador to India from the Indian ambassador
This antique Shiva is a beautiful addition to the very few antiques we have acquired over the years.  It took some research to find out exactly who this deity was.  The trident or trishul and drum of dhamru were the clues that showed this sculpture to indeed be Shiva, the Hindu god of destruction!  The style is a true departure from the styles of Indian wood carvings being created today.  His conical head dress, the style of his fingers as well as the weapons used for Shiva (the sword and mango) are departures from present day styles.  The tassels and his jewelry are all individually carved.  The piece has all the feel and texture of an wooden antique with its worn paint and deep resonating colors. 
Provenance:  The piece was a gift to the Bangladeshi ambassador to India and was part of his collection.  It is estimated to be carved in the 1950's. 

I always say to our customers; The sculpture chooses you, you do not choose the sculpture.
