  • Antique Banteay Srei Style Stone Mounted Khmer Buddha Head - 35cm / 14"

    Measures (Height) 35cm/14"

    An antique Khmer style mounted stone Buddha head in the pre-Angkorian style of Banteay Srei. The Bantreay Srei style developed at the same time as the Pre Rup style and overlaps that of the Kleang. It uses and develops the formulas of the Koh Ker style, the headdress with horizontal tresses and the conical mukuta. 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 diadem provide a delightful contrast with the smooth, polished stone, facial features. The inner rims of the ears display the characteristic tripart scalloped treatment. The lobes hang low, stretched from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. The face is defined by slightly arched eyebrows, full rimmed lips, wide open rimmed eyes and an aquiline nose. A conical three tier chignon-cover surmounts the head and is surrounded by a diadem, typical of the Banteay Srei period.

    Generally, the statues are small in size, but in scale with the temple, a feeling of elegance and softness is given off by the whole. The image radiates an aloofness, the quiet power of Buddha and the sensuality typical of the Banteay Srei period. The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing.

    The statue is mounted on a wood base.

    Provenance: Ex- private US collection.

The Naga and dragon arrived and have settled in. They are all very beautiful pieces, and they will give me much inspiration and protection for a long time. Thank you once again for making my home a sanctuary! May the Naga protect you!

I received the Buddha early afternoon on Friday. It is much prettier than I could have ever expected. The pictures do not show the beauty of this piece. It is amazing. You are amazing as well for sending it to me so fast and so well packaged. Thank you so much. I feel so lucky to have this piece and thank you so much for making that happen.
