Lord Khandoba is a folk deity worshiped especially in the Indian Deccan. The sculpture pictured below features him seated in an upright position on a horseback holding a sword in one hand and shield in the other whereas the horse is stationed in passant position on a rectangular low base. The sculpture belongs to the late 18th century or early 19th century A.D. It is made using a mixture of brass and bronze which over the years has developed a brown film over the surface.
Despite being a miniature sculpture, the details aren’t spared, each element is finely emphasized. You can know more about our artifacts collection from http://www.thegreateasternhome.com.
