Antique Preah-Ko Style Lakshmi / Devi Consort of Vishnu Head - 38cm/15"
Measures - (Height) 38cm/15"
A beautiful and serene antique Preak-Ko style (as seen in the pre-Angkorian period of the later quarter of the ninth century) Lakshmi statue from Cambodia. Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of wealth, prosperity (both material and spiritual), light, wisdom, fortune, fertility, generosity and courage. The embodiment of beauty, grace and charm. Also called Mahalakshmi, she is said to bring good luck, and is believed to protect her devotees from all kinds of misery and money-related sorrows. The large ushnisha on top of her head promotes the energy of meditation, deep contemplation and unity with higher energy.
The patina and details of this piece are particularly appealing. The head has been loose mounted on a wood plinth (later).
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.

I just opened the Buddha statue I purchased from you. I couldn’t be happier! It’s really beautiful, particularly the face. The shipping was faster than pieces I’ve bought on Etsy coming from the US, so thank you!! Do you have any idea how old this statue is? I’m looking forward to receiving the Avalokitesvara statue I recently ordered.

The Buddha head arrived safely today. The look of serenity they all possess is very appealing. This sandstone head strikes me as being particularly beautiful. The way the sculptor has created that look of complete contentment amazes me. Just the hint of a smile - definitely more Mona Lisa than Laughing Cavalier! A wonderful piece and I love it!
