Antique 7th Century Style Khmer Stone Buddha Head Statue - 50cm/20"
Measures (Height) 50cm/20"
A 7th century style Khmer Stone Buddha head.
The head is skillfully sculpted in the round. The distinctive manner of securing the hair in a looped topknot is seen in a number of contemporary 7th century sculptures from both northern India and Cambodia. The fullness of the forms give the face a softness which accentuates the eyes opened wide, and the fleshy and sensual lips. The anatomy shows a strong sense of observation. The overall silhouette is elegant and a reminder of the Pre Angkorian Art.
The ornate carving of the hair provides a delightful contrast with the smooth, polished stone, facial features. The inner rims of the ears display the characteristic tripart scalloped treatment. The lobes are stretched long from years spent as a Prince wearing heavy gold earings. The face is defined by slightly arched eyebrows, full rimmed lips, beard, wide open rimmed eyes and a rather broad, flat nose.
This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space. One of the most recognisable of the Asian deities this representation of the spiritual teacher Buddha is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.

It is important to remember that Buddhism is all about a personal journey, meaning there are many reasons to bring a Buddha statue into the home as well as many different types of Buddha statue to choose from.
The key element of Buddha statues is that they help communicate and remind individuals of the Buddha’s teachings by helping to focus on spirituality.
