7th Century Style Khmer Buddha Head
A 7th century style Khmer stone Buddha head. The Buddha displays the triple topknot of hair, an Indian convention much favoured in early Khmer art to denote childhood. Several pre-Angkorian examples in the National Museum of Cambodia, Phnom Penh share a similiar form. The broad faces, treatment of the hair curls and linear eyebrows have affinities with Buddhist imagery from the seventh-century Mon regions of neighbouring Thailand, suggesting a shared visual repertoire. The Buddha is carved from sandstone. The Buddha has a peaceful countenance with downcast introspective eyes and a firm brow. His earlobes are stretched long from a youth spent as a prince wearing heavy gold earrings. The carving and patina is simply beautiful as you can see in the fine details of the face. Each detail is rendered perfectly. The distinctive patina of the piece is also particularly delightful. The Buddha head is mounted on a wood base (later). Provenance: Ex- private US Collection. This traditional in appearance piece is sure to add serenity to your home, office or sacred space. Please contact us for high resolution images of the piece. HD Asian Art

19th Century Sukhothai Thai Enlightenment Buddha
Ca. 19th century Sukhothai style Buddha from Thailand. The Buddha is seated on a pedestal in the Bhumisparsa or 'Calling the Earth to Witness' mudr?. With fingers slightly touching the ground this position represents the subduing of Mara (a demon) who bombarded Buddha with demons, monsters, violent storms and the three seductive daughters. Remaining steadfast the Buddha testified to his meritorious past by pointing to the earth and calling the Earth Goddess, Thorani. Rising from the ground the Earth Goddess wrings the water from her long black hair. By this action she raises a torrential flood that drowns Mara and his army of demons. This gesture reflects this story symbolizing enlightenment, as well as steadfastness and Buddha?s achievement of perfection or nirvana. Provenance: Ex- UK Collection, acquired before 1975.
