India - (circa late 19th/early 20th).. This is a beautiful and old ceremonial figure of the Goddess Gauri from the state of Rajasthan; Northern India.This specimen was manufactured around 1890s - 1910. Figures like this would've been mounted on various object like dance staffs and perhaps as finials on ornate palanquins/litters. Also, they would've had fragile articulated arms, which overtime/use would easily break off. Like other old examples, this figure had lost its arms a long time ago.This object was made out of the beautiful dense Teak wood tree.The slight glossy patina on this is a "collectors patina" -- a thin layer of varnish on the surface to protect the wood and make it look more attractive to the viewer's eyes. The applying of varnish was common practice, by some European collectors, in the early 20th century.This figure came from an old English collection.You can read about the important and interesting Ganguar festival of Rajasthan and about the goddess Gauri, on the internet. Wealth of info is available.Contemporary wood goddess Gauri figures are still manufactured/used in Ganguar festivals ( see photo #5)This very old figure I'm selling is a rare survivor and was used many times in women's processions of the festival.*Condition-wise, its in very good condition; just the usual scratches, dents, minor chips; and some natural defects of the wood itself.***A beautiful. rare and historic North Indian artifact!Measurements: Height is 13.5 inches / width 3.5 inches at base......(wooden base is not included with figure).***** STUDY ALL PHOTOS FOR BEST DESCRIPTION; KNOW WHAT YOU ARE BUYING; DO YOUR RESEARCH!***** ABSOLUTELY NO REFUNDS; ALL SALES ARE FINAL!!!!!!..............ASK QUESTIONS.Thanks for looking :)Best, Rez Condition: Normal wear is commensurate with old age., Region of Origin: India, Maker: Rajasthan, Original/Reproduction: Antique Original
