The bronze cast miniature shrine with ornately perforated walls and gabled roof has a small flight-of steps (in imitation of its larger original), flanked by two images of elephants.
Such shrines were a part of domestic worship. Miniature bronze images of deities were placed inside for daily ritual veneration.
