A good quality four armed image in the usual pose to play a (missing) flute. As usual the upper hands hold a chakra and conch, which are well detailed, as is typical of the regional style. Other regional indicators are flower-like projections from the crown, makara earrings and a relatively simply lotus base. Venugopalas in this regional style often had a a small gada supporting the bent knee but his image never seems to have had one.
Dark brass colour, light to merate wear.
