Superb 17/18thC Hindu Figural Oil Lamp, with a sublime face. This piece measures 11.6" tall and 14.05" tall on its custom base. Cast from a very high quality alloy, possibly containing precious metal. This is by far the best of this type I have ever seen in the 25+ years I have been collecting and selling Asian sculpture. The ware has greatly increased her charisma, and amplified her spiritual energy. The piece is incredibly heavy for her size. An all time favorite that has been with me for 20+ years, and is only being made available as I prepare to downsize. It was the signature piece from the collection it came from - a lifetime collection this type of figural oil lamp. I purchased about a dozen of the best examples in the collection (of which this was the best) when the Southern California owner was selling the collection in the 1990's, in advance of retiring to Mexico.
