Description
Richly carved in the Indian tradition, this powerful little statue captures the inner soul of its subject rather than simply his outer appearance. Seated comfortably on a flower-like throne, dressed simply yet with apparent wealth, this effigy of the legendary Sikh leader regards the world through a glowing eye, his traditional attribute. Though Ranjit Singh lived in the 19th century, he projects the heroic dignity of an ancient king or deity. One need not be a follower of the faith to feel the tremendous energy that radiates from his image. - (PF.1092)
