Late 18th century small Indian bronze votive sculpture of Vitthali, regarded as a form of Vishnu or Krishna. His name means “standing on a brick”, he is in his characteristic stance with his hands on his hips and holding a conch shell in his left hand. He is also known as Vithoba or Panduranga, and is worshipped in particular in Pandharpur, not far from Bombay. Cast in the state of Maharashtra, sharp detailing, wonderful devotional wear, very pleasant patina. Traces of sandalwood paste used during worship. Not a very common icon. Height 2 inches.
