    Provenance

    UK art market

    This gilded copper ornament probably was intended to decorate a statue or throne in a temple.  It is shaped as a lotus petal and is repoussed with flower and leafy scrollwork. The centres of the flowers are inset with turquoise cabochons.

    The reverse, which is not gilded, has a spike presumably to allow the ornament to be held in place on a statue or throne.

    The element is decorative, with the colour of the gilding being particularly pleasing having softened with time.
