    This wooden door lintel from India has been carved with an addorsed pair of hamsas or sacred swans  separated by a sacred, jewelled vase of longevity. The swans have fabulous, foliate tails matched by equally extravagant foliage scrolls that terminate in flowers.

    A comparable door lintel dated to the 17th century is illustrated in Bussabarger & Dashew Robins (1968, p. 130).

    The example here has obvious age, and a splendid, deep patina.
