Cambodian Bronze Head of a Buddha, 11th -12th c.
10 1/2 in. x 7 3/8 in. x 6 3/4 in. (26.67 cm x 18.73 cm x 17.15 cm)
This head was originally part of a larger statue and has features typical of a Buddha seated in meditation, although without the hand positions, the specific type of image cannot be determined. The shape of the head, with a broader brow and narrower chin, is characteristic of Khmer Cambodian bronzes of the 11-13th centuries, as are the tight curls in rows of squares and the stepped lotus petals of the cranial bump.
