    An Indian Sandstone Female Deity Temple Element, Rajasthan-Madhya Pradesh, India, 10th-11th century
    37 x 11 x 11 inches (94.0 x 27.9 x 27.9 cm)

    The present figure represents a Hindu goddess who cannot be identified for her lack of hand implements and attendants. Her elaborate ornamentation and the sacred cord that lays between her breasts, however, identify her as a divinity. The sensuous curves of this female figure match the fluidity of those found at tenth-eleventh-century Hindu complexes such as the famous site of Khajuraho in Madhya Pradesh.

    Property from the Collection of Eric Wesenberg, California

    Estimate: $15,000 - $20,000.
