Standing Male Deity (possibly Shiva)
Not on view
Many of the attributes suggest that this god is Shiva. Unfortunately, other attributes that would lead to a definite identification are lacking. He holds a water pot in his left hand and a fruit—perhaps a pomegranate—in his right and wears a dagger at his waist. However, the flame-shaped mark on his forehead is not a third eye and he does not have an erect phallus. The massiveness of the body and hands seems to indicate a provincial version of the Gupta style practiced in Bihar.
