Head of Buddha

17th century, Ava period



Lacquered sandstone

H: 38 cm

A refined representation and great meditative intensity qualify this Buddha head sculpted in sandstone. The decorative touch is added by a thick layer of brown lacquer. The hieratic face, topped by a ushnisha in the shape of a lotus flower bud, is typical of the Ava style in its squarer shape, the firmly drawn nose with palpitating nostrils, the line of the eyes and the clearly marked eyebrows.

European Collection, before Christies Amsterdam 2006
