Antique Bayon Style Mounted Khmer Bronze Buddha Head - 42cm/17"
Measures - (Height) 42cm/17"
An antique Bayon style Buddha head from Cambodia.
The head is sensitively rendered with a softly contoured face and serene contemplative expression, with arched eyebrows bowed high towards the forehead, set above almond heavy-lidded eyes, a narrow well-shaped aquiline nose, bow-shaped lips with a soft smile, and prominent elongated ears. The head is covered in thorn-like hair curls, surmounted by a domed 'Ushnisha' symbolizing 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.
