19th century Indian bronze votive sculpture of Vishnu sitting with one leg pendant on a high base and holding Lakshmi on his left knee (usual name for this grouping is Lakshmi-Narayana). His right hand is in abhaya (absence of fear) mudra, while Lakshmi is holding lotus flower in her left hand. Very good casting and detailing, great dark patina, nicely worn on the front. Nailed to a wooden base (can be separated from the base by pulling 2 nails). Statue height 3 inches, height with stand 4 3/8 inches.
