Lot 0077A Details

Description
Southeast Asia, Indonesia, the island of Java, Majapahit Empire, ca. 1293 to 1527 CE. I love this one! A rare red-glazed ceramic goat, approximately half-life-size, with a lifelike, powerful stance, thick legs, and a dramatically decorated head with a large spiral on its forehead. Curved horns flow from the top of the head to the back of the neck. During the later Majapahit Empire, the buildings of East Java - both religious and secular - were decorated with dramatic figural sculptures in stone and terracotta. Many of these sculptures display characters from the great Hindu epic Ramayana. This goat may represent Naigamesha (Harinegameshi), a goat-headed deity associated with the war god Kartikeya. Size: 24" W x 20.75" H (61 cm x 52.7 cm)

Provenance: private Hawaii, USA collection; ex-private De Maria collection, Italy, 1998
