Wonderful 19thC tantric Hindu bronze Ganesh. Extremely intricate, with great detail. Animated and very expressive. Extremely heavy. Stands 11.75" tall, base measures approximately 6.5" x 3.75". Possibly originally part of a large elaborate oil lamp, and converted to current form by adding lead base and elaborate back-plate. Either Nepalese or Mix of Indian figure and Nepalese back-plate. Was modified in mid 20thC together with item 6609 to create a set, though each being sold separately(see photo of both items side by side). Some loss/damage to lead base. Beautiful!
