In very good condition

A fine detailed bronze figure of Indra sitting on his elephant, Airavata.

Indra's heavenly home is on or near Mount Meru (also called Sumeru). In the Rig Veda, which is a collection of ancient Hindu hymns, Indra is described as the king of the gods. He has authority over the sky and power using his weapon rain the lightning blast. Indra is the god of struggle. For each stroke he drinks a huge amount of soma, making his belly enormous. The soma is a divine SAP. It is said that this SAP allows him to achieve his heroic missions. His power defeated the snake Vritra that had swallowed up all the waters of the world. Indra cleaves the snake's buck with its thunderbolt, the release of the waters and the generation of life. By killing the snake, Indra is separated from the ocean and causes the sun to rise.

  • El penacho de plumas de la máscara no vino suficientemente protegido y 6 de ellas llegaron quebradas; el producto no llegó pues "all in perfect condition", lo cual reduce significativamente su valor

    Plutôt négatif... L'objet est vraiment de petite qualité. Bois très léger et aucune patine. Juste un peu de cirage. Les photos ont beaucoup trop embelli l'objet. Bref, je suis déçu. Dommage.

    Thank you for the feedback, the description of the lot was correct and complete. It was dated the end of the 20th century and the weight and dimensions were mentioned. I also did not talk about patina and the defect was described. Did you not read the description?
