  • Antique Preah-Ko Style Sandstone Vishnu Head - Protector & Preserver - 91cm/36"

    Measures (Height) 91cm/36"

    An impressive antique Preah-Ko Style sandstone Vishnu torso, in classic 10th century style. Stylistically, the image is transitional between the Bakheng and Koh Ker styles. 

    The deity wears a tired octagonal chignon-cover with a plain nape-cloth surrounded by a diadem carved in the stone. 

    The Vishnu embodies authority with its iconic downcast gaze and large unexpressive face. The general silhouette is heavier. With the Preah-Ko style the tiara and the chignon headdress become consistent and announce Angkorian Art. All features that suggest the prana, or inner breath, that signifies superhuman power. Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.

    The mitre worn by pre-Angkorian Vishnu figures evolved into a multi-tiered pagoda shaped headdress bounded by an elaborate diadem comprising two registers, lozenges in the lower and alternating stems and petals in the upper. The features of Vishnu demonstrate a prominent nose, jutting lower lip and firm chin. The Vishnu has perfect balance and proportions which are the key to a fine Vishnu sculpture.

    The pleated sampot can kpin and accompanying scarf are arranged in the Koh Ker style in which the upper fishtail is shorter that the lower fishtail.

    The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The details of this piece are particularly appealing.

    The Vishnu is loose mounted on a wood base (later).

The items arrived safely on Friday afternoon. I am really pleased with all of them but the money box is a favourite at the moment because it is so unusual. Thank you again.
