Tiny Lingam Sculpture

tiny lingam sculpture ankor period lingam

This is a zinc plated cap nut and square nut, roughed with steel wool and patina with cupric sulfate. In the top right is one from a collection from Collector without Walls: Norton Simon and His Hunt for the Best

In short this is an interesting sculptural form representing a hindu trinity "Brahma the creator, Vishnu the maintainer or preserver and Shiva the destroyer" 

For more information on this I would recommend:
Necklace version to come.
