It has great paint remains, patina, and wonderful little details. I was told that horses represent the Rajput class in India. The Rajputs were the warrior class of India. A pair like these may have come from the door frame of someone of this class. They were meant to protect the home and warn of the strength and power of those who lie within the home. The horses I have found over the years have always look powerful, strong, and like fighters. This story always seemed like it could have more truth than a tale. These artifacts would make anyplace more lovely as a piece of home decor, corbels for a bar, corbels for an entry to a room...the possibilities are endless. I have mounted a bracket on the back of the head and cut it so that it will rest properly against the wall. These brackets were meant for temporary showings and are not adequate for hanging in your space. less
