Overall: 76.8 cm (30 1/4 in.)
Purchase from the J. H. Wade Fund 1941.25
Three beauty lines are lightly incised around the neck.
The parallel matted locks of hair and the incised third eye on the forehead identify this figure as the Hindu god Shiva. A close-cropped beard comes to a point at his chin. The slim elegant form and short lower garment fastened with a low-slung belt are features characteristic of this period.
