Why this is a
Masterpiece

This sculpture is a marvelous example of inspired imagery and wonderfully conveys a condition of inner harmony, peace and compassion for all living things.

History of the Object
The Angkor era is famous for its marvelous stone sculptures carved mainly from sandstone, and for an abundance of decorated temple complexes. Special feature of these works are the half-closed eyes and the pensive, mysterious smile, called "Angkorian". This Buddha head has a similar smile. It is carved from dark serpentinite with greenish veins.
