GangaJumna Vithoba (Krishna/Vishu) (IBS261)
Ganga Jumna pieces are becoming rarer and rarer. Here we are please to offer this Image of Vishnu/Krishna from the early 18th century. In this form he is known as Vithoba. Although under worship it is in excellent condition with only minimal signs of wear.
The GJ process of casting was perfected mainly in the 18th century and sadly the process is now forgotten. Occationally we see very poor modern attempts, but when compared with the original pieces it is clear where the quality lies.
There is no damage to this piece and it is a good size.
