This exceptionally detailed and well-carved Indian wooden panel is known as a "kevadi." From the Kerala region and dating to the mid-19th century or earlier, this panel would have been carried during a religious procession as one of two similar supports for the principal Hindu deity being honored. This particular carving would almost certainly have been incorporated in a "Shaivite" ritual celebration, honoring Shiva. The piece measures 20" in height with excellent detail. Very minor losses, visible in the photographs. An excellent example.
