Head of the Buddha


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This head belongs somewhere along the path that took Lopburi stone sculpture of about the late 13th or ealry 14th century into the Early Ayutthaya style of about 1350-1450. It is a path upon which there are almost no fixed points. This stucco has a Sukhothai-like appearance because of the pointed hairline and the 'U'-incised chin; but this does not necessarily mean that what we see is the result of influence from a developed Sukhothai style.
