Cast bronze camphor-, or incense-holder in the form of Garuda. He is depicted beaked, winged and crowned and striding across a scrolling vine. In his hands is a rearing snake, recalling the story of his enmity for serpents. Above his crowned head is a columnar extension for holding incense sticks, or similar.
The figure is set on a lotus base which is perhaps not of the same date as the sculpture itself; the latter sits rather uncomforatbly on the former.
