Antique Khmer Style Bronze Mounted Shiva Torso Statue with Om - 46cm/18"
Measures (Height) 46cm/18"
An antique Khmer style bronze Shiva torso, mounted on a wood base (later), in the Angkor Wat 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.
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.
A crown of plaited and hair on the God's head forms his Chignon, along with his tiara or mukuta, in the Angkor style. The Sanskrit syllable Ohm or Om can be seen upon the Chignon symbolising his divinity.
This magnificent statue has perfect balance and proportions which are the key to a fine Shiva sculpture. The casting is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive azurite and malachite patina of the piece is also particularly delightful. The sculpture provides the perfect traditional in appearance Shiva to bring serenity and timeless style to your home, office or sacred space.

I received the Buddha early afternoon on Friday. It is much prettier than I could have ever expected. The pictures do not show the beauty of this piece. It is amazing. You are amazing as well for sending it to me so fast and so well packaged. Thank you so much. I feel so lucky to have this piece and thank you so much for making that happen.
