Antique Khmer Style Koh Ker Bronze Vishnu Head Statue - Protector & Preserver - 23cm/9"
Antique Khmer style bronze Vishnu sculpture.
Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature.
This compelling Vishnu image characterises Koh Ker style. As is typical with this style the Vishnu has a soft face with minimum decoration. His tiara or mukuta is richly decorated. A tradition that continued to develop in Cambodia from the 10th century to the post-Angkor period.
The hair is twisted and arranged in horizontal rows to form a jatamukuta marked with concentric circles of hair on top. His face is shown with rimmed lips, a beard and moustache.
Three indented beauty lines mark his neck. The image is mounted on a wood base.
The perfect traditional in appearance Vishnu to bring serenity and timeless style to you home, office or sacred space.

The embracing of Buddhist teachings is what makes it such good luck to bring a statue into your home. Whilst it’s definitely worth doing your research to know exactly what it is that your statue can do for you (not least so that you can make the most out of its presence), there is no such thing as bad luck from buying a Buddha statue for yourself, so long as you keep it clean and treat it with its due respect.
