Why this is a
Masterpiece

This is a unique sandstone work of high artistic quality and value.

History of the Object
In the Bagan period, many of the Buddha images were made of sandstone. Especially, medium size images were made of sandstone and put on pedestals and thrones. The Buddha images were put in niches in the inner and outer wall of the corridors of the temple for worship. The Buddha heads were made of sandstone but the body was made of bricks. Therefore, often only the head remained.
