As luck would have it, my father deals (amongst other things, no dope!) in antiques.

His specialty: Indian antiquities

ranging from the very small to the oversized shit.

I found myself sniffing around his most prized antiques today and took a few snapshots of some things that might interest you guys :mrgreen:

haven't really gotten around to ask about age & the mythology concerning some of the objects but of some i remember some dates when he showed my long time ago.

most of the iron objects are pretty recent 18-19 hundreds, but remember that these objects are copies of copies of copies etc.. and that those indian fuckers are pretty good at copying artwork at an incredible accuracy (seen the proof of that)

i think this is a tablet of Kali but im not sure neither of the date

VERY cool post.

I have always found antique dealers to be highly cultured and intelligent people.
