Head of an Attendant Bodhisattva


Description Provenance Credit
Description This head probably came from a figure of a Bodhisattva (an eventual Buddha), who stood beside the Buddha. The facial expression suggests that he might be the protective Bodhisattva Vajrapani, who guards the Buddha against evil forces.
Provenance Doris Duke Charitable Foundation's Southeast Asian Art Collection; Walters Art Museum, 2002, by gift.
