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.
