Carved standstone plaque of a seated Shiva, identified by his mount (vahana) the bull, with his consort, Parvati, both in the pose known as lalitasana, with one leg bent to rest on their seat and their other leg hanging down. Indian, ca. 1900. 23 ins. high, 16 ins. wide, 6 ins. deep.
Barbara says, "It's often difficult to pinpoint the age of sandstone pieces as it's a hard stone that ages very slowly. But here even the necklaces have retained their details well over the years. This plaque may have been part of a larger grouping that might have depicted other Hindu deities".
