Antique Carved Narmada River Tantric Lingam - India - Exhibited Chicago - 7 Lbs. For Sale

Antique Carved Narmada River Tantric Lingam - India - Exhibited Chicago - 7 Lbs.

GJPaw salesis pleased to bring to a RARE OFFERING of African Art & Cultural Artifacts from the estate of a well-known Chicago collector.

GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer an Indian Carved Tantric Lingam. Also, known as a Banalinga, this type of lingam is a quartz with iron oxide inclusions found in nature at the bed of the Narmada river in Madhya Pradesh, India. In India, lingams are an iconic symbol of worship based on cultural Hindu traditions. The lingams are highly sought after for daily worship by the Hindu people, and are thought to be personification of the God Shiva. This particular type of lingam also represents the unity of male and female energy. The Narmada river itself is located in central India and is the fifth largest river on the subcontinent. The river has important significance for having the ability to wash away one's sins and is considered to be a sacred place of religious pilgrimage. Due to the increase in height of the Sardar Sarovar Dam, the second largest dam in the world, these lingams are becoming increasingly rare and difficult to find. It is also true that the Narmada River is being systematically dammed with other structures, and authentic tantric lingams come from only one twelve kilometer stretch of this system, which is bracketed by two dams set forty five kilometers apart. This particular lingam was exhibited in a special showing of Tantric lingams in a prominent Chicago gallery (please see photo). The lingam stands 8 inches tall (20.3 cm), is comparable in size to an eggplant, and is very heavy. Included with the lingam will be a rubber stand that allows the piece to stand upright on its own. This piece is guaranteed authentic and was collected many years ago on the banks of the Narmada River from a Brahman family in the village of Bakawa.

GJPaw sales has been in theArt business for over 25 years and is now expanding its operation to . Our goal is to bring the same experience and excitement of collecting that we have been delivering to our walk-in customers for decades to collectors across the Globe.
