    Antique Manuscript Leaf of An Elephant and a God

    34 x 12 cm

    Elephants figure prominently in the myths and stories of India so it can be a challenge to identify a specific one.
    They can be multi-headed beasts such as Erawan. They can have composite bodies such as  Gajamina who has the body of a fish or lion. And others are demonic figures.
    In Hindu mythology there were three elephants by the name Supratika. The foremost among them is listed as one of the Diggajas, each representing the eight quarters. The Hindu epic Mahabharata describes two more elephants by the same name – a mythical elephant that was an incarnation of a sage, and the one that belonged to Bhagadatta, the king of Pragjyotisha.
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase. Ref: DCRH75JG
