Antique Bayon Style Bronze Mounted Khmer Buddha Head - 30cm/12"
Measures (Height) 30cm/12"
An antique Bayon style bronze Buddha head from Cambodia. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow.
The Buddha is typical of the refinement of bronze casting seen during the 13th century post-Angkor period, in Cambodia. The almond shaped eyes, broad cheekbones and forehead, as well as the elaborate jewellery, the naturalism of the body and limbs and the benign expression of the face are, characteristic of the Bayon style.
He has a large lotus bud ushnisha protuberance on top of his head symbolising his high level of spiritual development. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful. The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Buddha to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.
