Antique Phnom Kulen Style Hari Hari or Vishnu Torso - 50cm/20"
Measures - (Height) 50cm/20"
An antique Phnom Kulen style stone Hari Hari or Vishnu torso. Vishnu is both world protector and preserver, restorer of moral order - he is all-powerful and all-pervasive by nature. This style corresponds to the first half of the ninth century and the reign of Jayavarman II. It also marks a turning point in the evolution of the artistic imagery and prepares for the transformation towards classic Angkorian art. The elegant silhouette of the sculpture expresses the vigour, force and power of the God. The face, large and calm shows a continuous and assertive eyebrow line. The moustache is well defined.
Phnom Kulen art was able to preserve and expand upon the character of force and the beauty of the masterpiece of the 6th and 7th centuries.
The Vishnu is loose mounted on a metal and wood mount (later).
Provenance: Ex- private London, UK Collection.

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.
