Standing Buddha, anonymous, anonymous (rejected attribution), c. 700 - c. 800

bronze with gold ushnisha, h 42.0cm × w 12.0cm × w 3.786kg More details

Although this figure was found on Java, it was most likely made elsewhere and exported to Indonesia. The drapery folds of the monk’s robe are characteristic of Buddha figures from India or Sri Lanka. The protuberance on the head (ushnisha), a standard sign of the Buddha, is here made of gold and is a later addition.

On display in Aziatisch Paviljoen, room 2
