10th/11th C Jain bronze Shrine. Early and graceful example of great Jain sculpture. One issue- at some point as part of devotion someone re-carved details into much of statue- faces, animals, etc. it has almost a tribal look up close but from afar it looks no different than any other 1000 year old example (that could easily have starting/low and high prices that are 3 to 5 times higher than does this one) Measures 6 1/2 inches tall x 5 1/2 inches across x 2 1/2 inches deep.
