Exquisite Carved Alabaster Horse On Stand, Rajasthan, Circa 1720
4946
Circa 1720

Originally this piece would have been elaborately painted. It was recovered from a sunken ship after approximately 200 years on the sea floor. The result is this wonderful carving with only hints of the original paint having been washed and softened by the sea; overall even wear; some chipping; small areas of pigment; now on a later stand
