INDIA. INDONESIA. JAPAN. LANKA. LAO. THAILAND. TIBET. Title: Khmer Hardstone Female Deity Figure, Pre Angkor Period, 'Prei Khmeng' Style. Cambodia 8/9th C.Rare Miniature Figure. Temple Relic. Siem Reap Province, Northern Cambodia. Description:x An exquisite Southeast Asia Sandstone sculpture of a Female Goddess, probably that of 'Durga', stylistically and iconographically executed in traditional 'Prei Khmeng' style, gracefully portrayed standing in a convincing frontal posture with both arms and legs broken. In this context, she can be understood as Shiva's active female manifestation, or Shakti, who rid the world of evil forces. XXXShe is beautifully modeled with a voluptuous figure, gracefully poised, depicted with well defined naked upper body and broad hips, covered by a long stylized Sampot wrap worn high on her hips, secured by an inconspicuous belt, tied at the front in an elegantly fashioned loop and complimented by a narrow central panel draped down to the garments hem. Her youthful face with indigenous characteristics has arched eyebrows meeting at the center, accenting her almond-shaped eyes, a well-shaped nose, and wide mouth with an insipid smile. Her hair is piled tightly into a cylindrical mitre-type coiffure, without embellishments. As unearthed the fragmented statue is an exquisite example, with no condition issues, with the exception of an inconspicuous repair to the mid-section, broken-off limbs and minor surface abrasions. The piece reveals a nicely weathered surface, with a superb light brownish-gray naturally aged patina of molted variations from the environmental conditions in which it was maintained. This skillfully executed image is a superb example of the Khmer culture and the artistic style of the 'Prei Khmeng' period. Its creator has modeled a gracious interpretation of the divine iconic goddess in human form, with lively imagination and conviction. A matte black display stand is included, as shown.
