Head of the Buddha


Description Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This lovely head approaches the early Bangkok style. Compared to other Ayutthaya heads, the face is broader, the mouth more horizontal, and the eyes closer to the brows. Sculptors have decisively turned away from the 17th-century style.
