Description

Yali is a mythical creature seen in many Hindu temples, often sculpted onto pillars. It is portrayed in different ways, as part lion, part elephant, part horse, or similar shapes. It is sometimes described as part lion and part griffin, with bird-like features. The Yali is a commonly found motif in Indian art, used mostly in South Indian sculptures.
This miniature Yali made in bronze, is most likely from Sri Lanka. The old collectible has undergone normal time-related wear and tear, but is otherwise in good condition.
