Superbly Cast Icon in Bronze Created Using The "Lost Wax" Technique. Depicting Lord Vishnu Seated Upon a Lotus Throne His Right Hand Raised in Abhaya Mudra, His Left Arm Embracing His Consort Lakshmi Who is Seated Upon His Right Knee. This Figurative Group is Crisply Cast And Possess a Lovely Rich Chocolate Brown Patina. As With Most Bronzes of This Type it Will Include 1-2 Percent of Gold in The Cast Metal Mix. Both Images Have Been Hand Tooled With Decoration After Casting Which Gives The Group a Highly Desirable Finish. It is Quite an Outstanding Work of South Indian Metal Work And I am Very Pleased to be Able to Offer it to You. The Condition I Can Confidently Say is Excellent! Perfect For Private Devotion or For The Connoisseur Collector.
The Dimensions of This Figure Are: 9 cm high.
I Would Date This Icon to Circa: 19th Century 1800-1899
