18TH CENTURY SOUTH INDIAN BRASS PARROT

There are clearly the remains of tinning on this cast brass sculpture which would, when new, have made him shine like silver.

18TH CENTURY SOUTH INDIAN BRASS PARROT

18th / 19th Century

Height 12.8 cm width 18 cm depth 6 cm ( 5.25 x 7.25 x 2.5 in )

This cast brass bird is quite naturalistically modelled with vigorous incised detailing with, on its back a round blanket or saddle with cross-hatched decoration. Its chest and underside of the tail have drilled openings and it stands on a rectangular base with a circular hole for attachment.

The chest and tail holes may indicate its function as an oil container, although they may be a later alteration because the oil outlet on similar objects is usually cast as a projection with the body.

1871 / 3155
