5th C. Afghan Brass Amulet - Hindu God, ex Christie's
Item Details
Description
South Asia, Afghanistan, ca. 5th century CE. A solid cast brass deity head depicting a Hindu god, perhaps Shiva, with a rounded face, elongated almond shaped eyes under thick brows, stretched ears with earrings, and a beaded headdress crowns his head. The verso is completely flat, suggesting this was an amulet or attached flush to another surface, and perhaps this was once part of a lingam.

Provenance: private New Jersey, USA collection; ex-Jewel of the Lotus, Hawaii, USA; ex-Christie's (November 18, 1997, lot 33)

All items legal to buy/sell under U.S. Statute covering cultural patrimony Code 2600, CHAPTER 14, and are guaranteed to be as described or your money back.
