A sandstone relief of Durga Mahishasuramardini – earliest listed source, 1980

This sandstone relief of Durga Mahishasuramardini can be traced back to a sale at Spink and Son on the 18th of August 1980, since when it has been in the Collection of Guy and Marie-Hélène Weill in New York, but it came from “(either) Gujarapratihara or Madhya Pradesh” in India in the late 8th or early 9th century.

Its auction estimate is $80,000-$120,000.
