I really don't know anything about this statue. It was purchased at an estate sale...someone thought it might be from India. Is it a god or a mythological character? I couldn't identify it but maybe you can.
This is a cast brass metal figural of a Hindu deity. It is 20th century, likely produced in India and made for personal home shrine use. Hinduism is a way of life with a pantheon of 330 million gods and goddesses. This is the god Bhairava; he is associated with annihilation and is a protector women and the timid. The name means fearful which is to be one who destroys fear and is beyond fear.
The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
