Antique Khmer Style Koh Ker Standing Bronze Brahma - Hindu God Creation - 53cm/21"
Measurements H53cm (21")
An antique Khmer style standing Brahma in the Cambodian Koh Ker style. Brahma is the Hindu God of Creation and one of the Trimurti, the others being Vishnu and Shiva.
The power emanating from this compelling Brahma image characterises Koh Ker style. As is typical with this style the Brahma has a soft face and is adorned with elaborate earrings.
His tiara or mukuta is also richly decorated. A tradition that continued to develop in Cambodia from the 10th century to the post-Angkor period.
In his hands he holds a mandala, ball, kalasha, lotus bud, mall beads, sutra (holy book) and mace.
Brahma is stood samapada upon a pedestal decorated with Garuda.
The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face and hands. Each detail is rendered perfectly. Traditional in appearance, the sculpture will bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
