Ganga Jumna Vishnu (IBS263)
Ganga Jumna pieces have always been a favourite of ours. The fact that we have little idea how these casts were formed adds a magic elements to what is, in our view, a most beautiful form. The spirituality of this process representing India's two holiest rivers also appeals very much. It is rare to find these pieces and we feel fortunate to have found several over the years.
This image of Vishnu is one of the finest we have seen. The detail is superb and the two metals are beautifully executed. What makes this even more special is that there no damage and hardly any wear. It is a very special example of a very special icon in very special style. It is a good size too.
