NAMASKARA MUDRA, Putali, greeting statue, Nepal, mid 20th century
Authentic Namaskara Mudra greeting statue, putali from Nepal. You will find these statues in various forms all over the country; at a house altar, at the largest tree in the village, at the entrance to a village, on a bridge. They are therefore available in all sizes. This one is very different from others that you will find in my webshop. The slightly protruding head catches the eye. Partly eroded but with a great appearance! The body is rudimentary, broad, basal forms and the folded hands are missing. They have apparently disappeared through use and the ravages of time. Very characterful statue in the condition as described. See the pictures!
