Brahma Statue - Antique Khmer Style Bayon Brahma Tower or Stupa - 19cm/8"
Measures (Height) 19cm/8"
An antique Khmer style sculpture of one of the towers at the Bayon Temple bearing four faces which look at in the cardinal directions.
Many local Khmer believe that they represent the Four Faces of Prohm (Brahma) carved in the image of the Jayavarman VII himself as the Buddhist God-King, while others believe they are a representation of the Buddhist deity, Avalokiteshvara/Lokesvara.
The Bayon temple was built in the late 12th or early 13th century with the exact date being unknown. It was constructed well after Angkor Wat by a century or so and whilst not the last temple built in Angkor, it was certainly the last of the large state temples to be built. It was the centerpiece of the Buddhist king Jayavarman VII’s massive temple building spree.
The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing. This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add a unique touch to any room of your home or workplace.
One of the most recognizable of the Asian deities this representation of the consort of Vishnu is sure to enlighten your home with endlessly timeless style.
