This is a wonderful hand carved antique naive vintage painted wooden temple cow.

It’s an old piece – possibly 80-100 years old.

An item like this would have once been found in an Indian temple.

Scaramanga is very pleased to be offering this rare and unusual piece.

Temple cow size: W9cm x D25cm x H14cm.

As a bit of historical reference:

On most cultures, he cow has been a symbol of wealth since ancient days. In India although the cow is held sacred to the Hindus, it is not exactly worshipped as a deity. A cow in Hindu India is kind like a sheep is to Christianity.

If you ever get the opportunity to visit India then you’ll notice cows everywhere. No just in fields …but everywhere. This is because the cow is respected as a sacred animal, it's allowed to roam unharmed, and they are pretty used to the traffic and the rhythm of the city. You can see cows roaming the streets in towns and cities, grazing unmindfully on the roadside grass verges and munching away vegetables thrown out by street sellers.
Note: Our vintage and antique wooden items are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal. Please look at the photos to get an idea of their condition.
