This gracefully cast sculpture from Nepal with five little floral lamps for a halo was most probably commissioned by a royal figure as donation to a temple. Below the wreath of flowers, the royal donor kneels on a lotus base with his hands folded in prayer, wearing an impressive Malla style headdress and a typical Nepali tunic with ornate jewellery.
