SEATED GANESHA


The present lot, a 12th century stone depiction of Lord Ganesha, comes from the Hoysala Empire. The Hoysalas ruled Karnataka between the 10th and 14th centuries AD. They reached their peak in the 12th century, when they took advantage of the warfare between the ruling Western Chalukyas and the Kalachuris by capturing all of Karnataka as well as areas north of the Cauvery river.

The art as well as architecture of the Hoysalas is radically different from that of the rest of India. The style is distinctly classical. The stone used was also different, and so were the proportions imparted to the figures carved from it.
