Object of the Week: Mysterious Hindu Figure

This copper alloy statue shows a woman wearing a short-sleeved bodice worn under a sari called a ‘choli’.

Her hands are socketed indicating that she originally held something when she was fashioned some 150 years ago.

We really don’t know much about her. Perhaps you can help?
