19th century Indian bronze votive sculpture depicting Khandoba (a form of Shiva worshipped in Western India) mounted on an elephant with his wife Mhalsa seated in front of him. Rare icon - usually the couple is riding a horse. Khandoba is holding 2 bladed weapons in his hands and Mhalsa directing the beast with an ankus (elephant goad). Very good quality casting, nicely defined faces, beautiful wear and patina. Very pleasant feel of age to the piece. Height 2 7/8 inches.
