Figure of a Parrot Sculpture from The Met Museum


Skilled metalworkers in India have for centuries created courtly objects of distinction in a variety of styles, materials, and techniques. One such brass object in the Museum’s collection is in the shape of a graceful parrot (Indian, late 18th century), delicately perched on one leg, which may have been used as a finial. Our delightful parrot figure, crafted of hand- patinated bonded bronze, is based on the original brass parrot.
