His face appears serene, with arched eyebrows set over almond-shaped eyes, a broad nose, thick lips, and elongated earlobes with triangular Khmer style earring pendants.xxxxx His mount, Kala of Angkor is one of three principle animal deities in Khmer mythology, a toothy lion style creature, regarded as a ferocious monster symbolic of absolute time in its all devouring aspect, and associated with the destructive side of the god Shiva.

A superb naturally aged reddish-brown patina, penetrating the surface of the stone, in wonderful mottled variations of hues and colors.
