Why this is a
Masterpiece

This Buddha head is a special bronze piece with a beautiful green patina.

History of the Object
The East-Asiatic collection in the Didrichsen Museum of Art and Culture consists mainly of Chinese art, but there are also some exquisite pieces from other Asian countries, such as Thailand, Cambodia, Tibet and Nepal. In this Buddha head from Thailand, the face is shaped in the Khmer style, with a broad forehead and high eyebrow line. The combination of the sensitive modeling of the nose and mouth are typical of Mon art in Lopburi. The ear lobes are especially long. The flame emerging from ushnisha is missing.
