This gorgeous pair of statues, made out of teak wood, was sourced from an ancient temple in Tamil Nadu, where they were used as a part of the temple procession. Over 150 years old, both these figures are depicted as standing on one leg in supplication. As such, they've been mounted on a three legged support to remain steadily upright. The floral motif is strong here, with temple headdresses normally worn by pagan priests or chieftains. The wood has acquired a deep and dark tinge that gives these pieces an appropriate gravitas.
