Description

Brackets are architectural elements, projected from a wall, usually to carry weight or to strengthen an angle. Intricately carved and painted brackets were often found in palaces and temples.

This old bracket, depicting a lady with crossed legs in a sari, is from Gujarat and would most likely have been used as a decorative architectural element. There is some loss of paint due to ageing. The bracket is mounted on a wooden base.
