I have what I believe is an Indian bronze Ganesh. It stands approximately 10 1/2" h. I am curious about the identity of the figure, its approximate age, and estimated value.
Condition is good, the oxidation seen in the picture being the major detraction.
The photos are from an older camera which I can retake with a much newer and improved one if they are of insufficient quality.
yes. I have a picture of the base underside I will post later today which shows some of the artifacts of what I presume was the lost wax method. in other words, this object is not solid bronze in the sense of its entire volume being metal.
i had forgotten how the bronze was formed. when looking under the base, there appear to be 2 halves which suggests sand casting.
