This is a beautiful pair of Dwarapalas in excellent condition, with considerable traces of original colour still visible. Dwarapalas or ‘door guardians’ are placed at the entrance of every temple, shrine or sacred precinct. Depicted with either two or four hands, they carry the emblem of the deity enshrined in the sanctuary, in their hands. Their countenance may be fierce, and occasionally, fangs protrude from their mouths. Temples dedicated to goddesses have female guardians - the Dwarapalikas.
This pair of Dwarapalas is from South India. The left one measures 10.5 x 7.2 x 24.5 inches and the right one measures 10.5 x 7 x 23.2 inches.
