Antique Khmer Style Bayon Seated Bronze Shiva Statue - 42cm/17"
Measures (Height) 42cm/17"
Antique Khmer style seated Shiva in the post-Angkor Bayon style.
As the destroyer, Shiva is regarded as limitless, transcendent and unchanging. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga, meditation and arts.
This lovely bronze figure has facial features and ornate jewellery typical of the Bayon style. The cylindrical piling up of his hair into a high chignon and regimented hair curls demonstrate the ecumenical nature of iconography in the Bayon period, the former associated with the supreme form of Vishnu, the latter with Shiva.
To the rear the Sampot is fastened with a butterfly style bow in the post-Angkor Wat style. A serene Shiva with beautiful detail and patina.
This traditional in appearance piece is sure to bring serenity to your home, office or sacred place.

A deity of contradictions, Shiva the Destroyer, has a tumultuous history which is reflective of his many responsibilities and characterisations. His importance over the universe, but also his personality, make him a popular choice in Hindu art.
