Head of a Buddha, Anonymous, 800 - 850

andesite, h 28.5cm × w 24.0cm × d 26.0cm. More details

This head probably comes from one of the 504 Buddha statues placed on and around the great Buddhist monument of Borobudur. All these figures represent the Buddha seated, with his eyes cast down. The raised spot between the eyebrows, the urna, and the protuberance on the head, the ushnisha, signify the Buddha’s holiness.
