About the collection


Acquired the first piece in the mid-1980s and it was only after 2010, the momentum picked up. I enjoy buying pieces as much as being curious about them.

The links to the bronzes in the picture above are:

Back row, our left to right: Dhatr Surya, Hanuman, Udupi Krishna, Dattatreya and Vishnu

Front row: Gajalakshmi, Shadakshari Lokeshwara, Uma Shaita, Yoga Narasimha, Mahaganapati, Anantasayana, Gajalakshmi on vahana, Annapurna and Crawling Krishna.

This site is an attempt to learn more about Indian Bronzes.  My contact is padmanabhan.sridhar@gmail.com. If you have something to share or want to know more about the pieces, I would love to hear and will respond to every email.

The bronzes are owned by me and they are not for sale.

Please feel free to use the images and/or text for non-commercial purposes. Acknowledging the source will be appreciated.

It is difficult to determine the age of the pieces given the range of deities, materials, regions and varied nature of use. I have adopted what the seller has stated or made a more conservative assessment. All age estimates are just that.

Been publishing at least one blog /piece every week since November 2015 and it will keep me busy for some time to come (As of Aug 2021).

Sharing my passion
