  • Antique Khmer Style Mounted Stone Shiva - The Destroyer - 36cm/14"

    Measures - (Height) 36cm/14"

    An antique Khmer style Cambodian Shiva in the pre-Angkor 9th century Phnom Da style. The power emanating from this compelling Shiva image characterises Khmer style at its very best. As is typical with the Khmer style the Shiva has a soft face displaying the talents of a master craftsman.

    The power of Shiva is limitless, transcendent and unchanging as he removes all evil from the world. For the devotee Shiva offers protection, guidance and a sense of belonging. Shiva is also regarded as the patron god of yoga, meditation and arts.

    As with images from this period, the ornamentation reflects a perfect mastery of sculpting and fluidity. Facial features of the statue retain characteristics of the previous Banteay Srei style, but appear more delicate. The deity is masterfully modelled in realistic human form.

    The face appears typically Khmer, with a serene expression, incised almond-shaped eyes, connected eyebrows above a well-shaped broad nose, wide plump mouth and elongated earlobe. Typical of the period, no tiaras or jewellery, decorates the sculpture. The hair is drawn onto the top of the head to form a bulb shaped-chignon. This is characteristic of the style.

    The Trilochana of Shiva can be seen on his forehead - the Three-Eyed Lord. It is the eye of wisdom, free from Maya, the illusion, and duality of life. It is also believed to be the source of his untamed energy.

    The features suggest the prana, or inner breath, that signifies superhuman power. The figure is presented in its unrepaired condition as found, elegantly modelled from a solid block of sandstone.

    The Shiva is mounted on wood (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.
