Wallmounted Indian Carved Wooden Horses
Pair of large carved wooden horses.
These were made to be mounted on the wall, either side of a doorway or frieze.
There are standing erect on their rear legs, front legs resting on a tall carved arc, their tails are long and reach up their backs to the level of their heads. The strangest feature is their mouths which are lascivious, wide open and dragon-like with tongues protruding. Beautifully and expressively carved, they're not just ordinary horses, they have a mythical quality with a hint of the majesty of a lion.
Each horse is carved from one piece of wood. Sold only as a pair.
Dimensions: height approx. 90cm
