  • Antique Baphuon Style Mounted Khmer Stone Vishnu Head - 58cm/23"

    Measures (Height) 58cm/23"

    A majestic antique Baphuon style stone Vishnu, from Cambodia. Stylistically and iconographically executed in traditional 'Baphuon' style, from Khmer mythology.

    The figure is presented in its unrepaired condition as found, elegantly modelled from a solid block of sandstone. 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 deities face is masterfully modelled in realistic human form.

    The face appears typically Khmer, with a serene expression, incised almond-shaped eyes, firm eyebrows above a well-shaped broad nose, wide plump mouth and elongated earlobes. 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, held in place by a worked gold chain or a garland of flowers. The summit of the head surmounted but a lotus flower, presenting purity. These features are characteristic of the style. Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.

    The Vishnu embodies authority with its iconic downcast gaze and large unexpressive face. The general silhouette is heavier. 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.

    Please note your Vishnu sculpture will be shipped in a wooden crate.
