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 Indian palaces and temples.
This exquisite pair of brackets feature Yali - 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.
Intricate carved in polychrome wood, this pair of Yali brackets is a precious find.
