Head of the Buddha, from a Naga-Protected Buddha


Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The tiered "usnisa" and the hair treatment are not in fact different from those seen in images that seem to belong to the earliest stages of Lopburi stone sculpture, in the late 12th century. Nevertheless, the crisper curvature of the mouth suggests a connection with the works that would be better placed in the first or second quarter of the 13th century.
