TIBET. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________ Title: Khmer Hardstone Head of a Male Deity, Angkor Wat 'Baphuon' style. Cambodia. 11/12th C. Temple Relic. Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. Museum Quality! Description: A powerful hardstone fragmented Head of a Male Deity, sensitively carved in traditional Baphuon style, an iconic example of Khmer artistry at its finest, masterfully rendered in realistic human form, with exacting detail and aesthetic alignment of the features. The expression of the face is soft, yet displays inner strength and natural form with leaf-shaped downcast eyes set beneath finely carved continuous ridged eyebrows, a prominent nose, full mouth with smiling lips, and long pendulous earlobes frame his face. The head is covered by vertical rows of tightly matted hair, rising to a cylindrical-shaped topknot, a cranial protuberance, depicted as a 'Chignon', decorated with a lotus flower carved at the top and secured by a band of pearls. xxxxx Originally chiseled as a full figured image, this fragmented portion is an exquisite example, beautifully executed from a solid block of dense hardstone, unaltered, with no condition issues, with the exception of minor surface abrasions. The piece reveals a well weathered and worn surface, with a naturally aged brownish-green patina of molted varieations, showing minor surface degradation, and clear evidence of selective erosion that developes after extended exposure to the elements over time. The sculpture retains excellent clarity, rendered with distinct facial features, powerful downcast expression, and ornate formalism, measuring 7.0 inches (17.78cm) in height, without the museum mount.
