Description

Mukhalinga, literally means 'linga with a face'. The linga (or lingam) is an abstract representation of the Hindu god Shiva, seen as a symbol of energy. The mukha, is a covering used to give a face or iconic form to the abstract Shiva Lingam. Worshippers believed that the face would allow them to see, and be seen by Lord Shiva.
A rare depiction and find, this piece features a mukhalinga seated atop a horse. The serpent (naga) on the crown of the head is detachable, and makes the piece, crafted in brass, even more interesting.
