18th century Indian bronze Shiva shrine in a form of a courtyard, the family of Shiva seated by a lingam: his elephant headed son Ganesha, his wife Parvati, Nandi bull and Naga (hooded cobra) rising protectively over the lingam, a pile of offerings in front of it. Very nice devotional sculpture with earnest casting and detailing, good patina from being touched during worship, compressed sandalwood paste in crevices, very pleasant feel of age. Size about 1 7/8 inches square.
