An Indian bronze figure of Shiva, circa 17th century with nice old patina. 7 1/4 inches tall (18,5 cm). CONDITION: One hand is broken. Shiva (Sanskrit: Auspicious One), or Siva, is one of the main Deities of Hinduism, worshipped as the paramount lord by the Saivite sects of India.

He is the destroyer and the restorer, the great ascetic and the symbol of sensuality, the benevolent herdsman of souls and the wrathful avenger.
