Pair of 18th Century Sandstone Temple Elephants
Pair of rare 18th century temple elephants carved in sandstone with chalk and leftovers of gold leaf.
Chalking is used as a surface to bind gold leaf. Originally fully covered with gold leaf.
Elephants have a God status and are the guardians of the Buddha templ, often seen at the temple entrance.
On the back of each elephant, there is a large recess for columns- pergola.
In fine condition with natural age-related patina.
Often seen in replica version made in clay but here we got the original temple elephants from pagodas, 18th century.
