His life story and the purpose of his incarnation (to destroy Ravana, the demon king) are described in the Ramayana. This statue represents Rama, the archer as if stringing an invisible bow. In good condition (except some damage on the edge of the base) and a beautiful patin. India, 17th. century. Yijayanagar Empire (1336-1646) Tamilnadu, South india. Height 58 cm. Weight 17 kg.
