A gilt bronze figure of Parnashavari – earliest listed source, 1981

This sixteenth-century gilt bronze figure of Hindu forest goddess Parnashavari was in the Zimmerman Family Collection “by 1981” – but where before 1981? Due to its style, it has been associated with “Newar artists in Tibet”, “Densatil Monastery and the surrounding region”.

Its auction estimate is $150,000-$250,000.
