Carved Alabaster Horse on stand, Rajasthan circa 1720; originally this piece would have been elaborately painted. It was recovered from a sunken ship after about 200 years on the sea floor. The result is this wonderful carving with only hints of the original paint having been washed and softened by the sea.
