Oil lamp, anonymous, c. 1300 - c. 1500
In the centre of the lamp is the half-bird, half-human figure of Garuda. The woman on his knee is possibly his mother, whom he rescued, according to legend, from the naga or snakes. The base of the lamp consists of four containers for oil, each with a lip to accommodate a wick. The lamp could be suspended on a chain, probably near an altar or in a temple.
