Antique Indian Temple Toy.
Stylized Brass Horse Figurine made in India.
Since ancient times, a person was held in high esteem for the donation of a horse or other animal to one of the Hindu Gods. It was believe that these bronze figures allowed the God to come to the aid of the devotee in times of need. These figures would be left as offerings in a nearby temple, where children would often find them and use them as toys; hence the name "Temple Toy."
The horse is in super vintage condition, with some minor fading and wear.
It measures 4" (10.5cm) tall and is 4.25" (11cm) long.
Lovely Asian Art Sculpture or Collectible Decor.
