Antique Khmer Style Phnom Da Krishna Statue - Avatar of Vishnu - 68cm/27"
Measurements - Height 68cm/27"
An antique Khmer style Krishna torso depicted in the pre-Angkorian Phnom Da style.
Krishna, the most popular avatar of Vishnu, is represented here as a young boy. He wears a sampot can spin knotted and rolled at the waist with a pleated panel in the back, and a matching pleated front panel formed by a scarf. His hair is represented in tiers of tight ringlets rising to a low knob.
The Krishna torso has a slender waist, broad hips and shoulders, wearing a vertically striated sampot high at the back curving steeply in the front to below the navel, bound by a plain belt tied with the end hanging down onto the left thigh and pulled up under the belt with two curled ends just below the navel, the fabric pulled between the legs and wrapped around the belt at the back, the pleated ends forming a 'butterfly wing' shape.
The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly.
The details of this piece are particularly appealing. The Krishna is loose mounted on a wood base (later).

I just have to say that I couldn't be more pleased with our purchases. Thanks! We're moving into a new home and have been anxious to find more Khmer art so that our daughter is surrounded by things that represent her family background.
