Series/Report no.: Basham Collection
Description: Although of foreign inspiration, this type of capital differs from its original model and shows purely Indian characteristics, The animals no longer support the architrave but are only a pretext for decoration, Some figures have been added, as in the scene where a man helps a woman to climb on the back of an elephant, The cushion is only starting to get away from the cubic form, Beading forms the transition between the bulb and the superimposed square capital, [formerly IA-476, number crossed out and replaced with IA-471]
