A female deity standing on a frog, potentially Mandodari, 'the Frog Princess', or Parvati standing on Shiva as a frog. The work is of cast brass in the Dhokra style of Eastern India. Depicted is a female figure in relief with arms raised, wearing a dress which flares out to either side, fixed by pins to a frog that was cast separately. The frog is flat, with a fine pattern of crosses (or Hindu swastikas) in rows all over his back and legs.
