  • Antique Angkor Wat Style Khmer Sandstone Standing Vishnu Torso - 95cm/38"

    Measures - (Height) 95cm/38"

    An antique Angkor Wat style stone standing Vishnu torso. Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.

    The sculpture embodies authority with its iconic downcast gaze and large unexpressive face. The general silhouette is heavier. The carving is beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The features suggest the prana, or inner breath, that signifies superhuman power. The figure is clad in traditional Khmer Dhoti.

    The art of Angkor Wat is in many ways in opposition to that of the preceding Baphuon style. The style is a return to frontality and hieratism. The shoulders are larger, the torso swells to a heavy and conventional shape evoking the aesthetic of the early tenth century; affirming a hieratism without moderation. Yet the sculpture is not submitted to strict iconographic norms, the statue loses stiffness and becomes more human.

    The sculpture is a free standing form, in the round. It is clear that the artist anticipated this sculpture being enjoyed from all sides.
    The Vishnu is loose mounted on a wood base (later).

    Provenance: Ex- private Singapore Collection.

Let Us Help You Find The Piece You Desire

Thanks for your kind note. I have always found it to be a pleasure doing business with your company. The products and service offered are superb. As a collector, I already own several Burmese pieces, but nothing even closely comparable to this one. When I saw it I was smitten. Keep up the good work. You have in me a very satisfied and confirmed customer.

The Burmese Buddha arrived safe and sound. He is beautiful and is another amazing addition to our home. I often buy Buddha’s in pairs and this has been no exception!

I received it today and am very pleased with the statue. I plan to place another order.
