Buddha Head Fragment. Bronze. Buddhist. Thailand
What can I say? Nothing . . that would adequately describe this Buddha head.
The crown of hair (aka Ushnisha) – one of the most iconic features of Buddhist art – is fully in tact with the common peppercorn-like curls (representing freedom) and moving upward to a flame point.
Acquired from a private collector of Buddhist art who claims to have acquired this head fragment in that late 1960s.
For the Serious Collector. Little oxidation with excellent patina.
Sold with stand.
