Antique Phnom Da Style Mounted Bronze Khmer Buddha Head - 26cm/10" Tall
Measures (Height) 26cm/10"
A 7th century style pre-Angkor Khmer bronze Buddha head.
The Buddha is cast from bronze and has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings.
The hair is depicted in circles of tight curls that decrease in size toward the ushnisha.
The broad face, treatment of the hair curls and linear eyebrows have affinities with Buddhist imagery from the seventh-century Mon regions of neighbouring Thailand, suggesting a shared visual repertoire. Although, the style resembles Dvaravati images carved in Thailand, the present Buddha is more sensuous than most Dvaravati Buddhas. The Buddha here is the result of an appealing blend of Gupta, Dvaravati and Khmer characteristics.
The design and patina is lovely 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 Buddha head is mounted on a wood base (later).
