  • Lakshmi Statue - Antique Baphuon Style Stone Lakshmi / Devi Consort of Vishnu Head - 34cm/14"

    Measures (Height) 34cm/14"

    A delightful antique Baphuon style Lakshmi, devi or Goddess head from Cambodia. The hand-carved Khmer Sandstone Deity head, probably of Lakshmi, is stylistically and iconographically executed in traditional 'Baphuon' style, from Khmer mythology.

    The Baphuon period is generally considered to have occurred between the 11th and 12th centuries CE, during the reign of King Udayadityavarman II in the Khmer Empire. This period falls within the broader timeline of the Angkor era, which encompasses the height of Khmer power and cultural achievement.

    The figure is presented as found, elegantly modelled from a solid block of hardstone. As with images from this period, the ornamentation reflects a perfect mastery of sculpting and fluidity. Facial features of the statue retain characteristics of the previous Banteay Srei style, but appear more delicate.

    The deity is masterfully modelled in realistic human form, mounted on a wood and metal base. As is traditional, the face appears typically Khmer, with a serene expression, incised almond-shaped eyes, single, connected eyebrows above a well-shaped broad nose, wide plump mouth and elongated earlobes.

    Typical of the period, no tiaras or jewellery, decorates the sculpture. The hair is drawn onto the top of the head to form a bulb shaped-chignon, held in place by a worked gold chain. This is characteristic of the style.

    Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage.

    The embodiment of beauty, grace and charm. Also called Mahalakshmi, she is said to bring good luck, and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows.

    The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.

    The sculpture has been loose mounted on a wood and metal plinth (later).

    This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add a unique touch to any room of your home or workplace. One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of the consort of Vishnu is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
