A wonderful antique carved wooden figure p. Robably originally part of a freeze or larger sculptural piece. The figure has been carved in a rather acrobatic or flying pose and looks like it was originally holding something, as we can see two aligned holes in the hands. There are three old metal rings attached – one in the top of the head and two in the back, one can only wonder at what exactly these were for, but currently they have been wired up with a rather unattractive nylon line to allow hanging. The paint has worn off over time but there are still traces here and there. Particularly head and underneath on the clothing. It’s carved from a dense, hard wood of some type, fairly heavy overall. Difficult to date exactly but definitely has some age – mid 19th century India by repute. Very good overall condition; there’s an old repair to one arm, but no other significant damage. Obvious signs of age and paint loss. Measures; 19 inches / 48 cm long x 8 inches / 20 cm widest point. From tip of fingers to top of head 11 inches / 28cm.
