Three elegant forms stand at attention, yet they are difficult to identify. It seems that they may have some sort of function but what that might be is a mystery. The objects look European but feel at home in Jaipur, reminding us of the extravagant combinations of Easter and Western architecture found throughout India, not least in its capital buildings in New Delhi. These bronze sculptures by the American artist James Brown could be pieces missing from a chess set or perhaps markers in a history of cultural exchanges.
