Virabhadra plaque

Artist Unknown, India, South India

Shiva as Virabhadra stand in a relaxed posture under an elaborate arch placed above a goose form on either side. The arch curves inward and forms a heart shape at the center meeting in a mask of glory, a kirtimukha. Against the pillars holding up the arch are figures of the goat-headed Daksha on his right and saintly figure on his right. Both are in posed of devotion with their hands in a prayer pose, namaskara. Virabhadra has four arms (reading clockwise from his front right hand) holding a sword, an axe, a trident and resting on a club. He wears a lower garment covered by a series of belts and a multi-tiered necklace coving much of his chest. He also wears a long garland decorated with small human heads at the bottom across his thighs. A five-headed snake hood is spread behind his crown and coils of the snake project above each of his shoulders.

The birth of the Kauravas from a Mahabharata series

Artist Unknown, India, Gujarat

A scene takes place in a red box, lined with black and red diamond and triangle designs for borders. In the center, a woman sites with a child in her lap. She wears a spotted dress, her hair up, and a nose ring and bindi. The child reaches one hand and places it atop her head, and the other down towards her own upward hands. Surrounding them are seven other figures. One kneels before them, offering his hands up, and another fans the woman from behind. The remaining five figures seem to play together in front of the throne on which the woman and child sit.

Portrait of Maximilien-Sébastien Foy

Baron François Gérard

This portrait painting shows a full-length, life-size figure of a man. He is standing on the top of a mountain against the background of a sky with dark clouds and a rocky mountain range. He is facing the viewer but his gaze is directed to the right. He is dressed in a French military uniform of the Napoleonic time period, including black leather riding boots, a sabre and a large black cloak that billows in the wind. He holds his hat in his hands. His uniform decorations and medals are shown in great detail.

Oriya manuscript (unidentified), leaf: A Meeting in the Forest (pair with 1997/2.40)

India, Orissa

The inherently small scale of a manuscript page requires a simplified style with figures and plant forms against a plain background. This scene represents the meeting of a man and a woman (accompanied by attendants) in the forest.

Varahi

Artist Unknown, India, Tamil Nandu, Kanchipuran

Varahi has a crowned boar’s head on a woman’s body. She sits with her ankles crosses and originally had four arms, the back two have broken away as has the front right hand which had probably been held up in a reassuring gesture. Her left from hand is held down at her left knee with the palm held facing out in a gesture of giving. Her body is softly modeled with a narrow waist and full breasts. She wears jewelry that is in sharp but low relief and includes a series of necklaces forming a collar of decoration and a longer one that falls between her breasts which suggests the sacred thread extending down to her waist at her right. She is naked from the waist up and the lower garment is merely suggested by the heavier folds at the waist. Her head is tilted and her chin/snout had jutted out to the left, but the lower snout is broken away. She wears a conical crown that accents the long diagonal of her face. Originally there was an arch behind the image which would have supported her back arms, so the image would have appeared denser, with only the cut away empty space to the sides of her waist.
