This cast bronze figure depicts the Hindu god of war Kartikeya, also known as Skanda Kumara, Murugan, Shanmugha and Subrahmanya. Traceable to the Vedic period (c. 1500 – c. 500 BCE), Kartikeya has been an important deity in the Indian subcontinent since ancient times and is widely regarded as the "God of the Tamil people." Kartikeya is typically represented as an ever-youthful man, an agile warrior riding an Indian peafowl as his mount. He is depicted here with six faces and twelve arms, several holding objects such a bow, a ring, and a vajra scepter.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
